The 1996 presidential campaign of Bob Dole was not one for the ages, but its campaign website remained live in perpetuity afterward, a glistening perfect Web 1.0 memento of a bygone age. It was rediscovered this summer, briefly enjoying more attention than it ever likely got 25 years ago. It had its great moment. And now it has finally died, like an overloaded lightbulb or a bird of paradise crushed in the melee. The archive at the Wayback Machine is all that's left.
I would embed barber-adagio-with-strings.mid in mourning but alas, that sort of thing doesn't just work on the web these days.
