the art of long-lived websites

I'm looking to create new art for long-lived websites. I see this as more of a financial and organizational problem than a technical one. From a technical standpoint, the best approach are static files served by any software capable of serving folders of static files. I like Apache. The domains should continue to work. — Dave Winer, Preserving the early blogosphere

It’s not the first time Dave writes about these things, he’s been doing it for years, but this post puts so many of them together. And I liked that he describes this as an art, even though I’d probably call it a craft.
