Director of the archives of The Coca-Cola Company where we have had an active program to capture our Company and branded Websites around the world. While we were an early adopter using a third party vendor (Hanzo) to capture selected sites as early as 2009 and even getting our data from the Internet Archives to try to recreate our first site, our more recent efforts have been focused on the merge between web and social.
