What would be really useful is an sha archive of the internet ;P
Imagine that we can find the source of an image by just looking it up
in the archive.
I guess no such thing exists yet. But it may be worth setting up such
database, although it will become enormous and take ages to populate.
But with a seti-at-home-like setup it might as well be feasable. Ok
just daydreaming :)
