Just as Tucson has a graveyard of old airplanes, so the University of North Texas has the CyberCemetery, a repository of defunct Federal agencies' websites. One of those agencies is the Office of Technology Assessment, which surprises me; I'd have thought there would still be a need for that, but apparently some budget hawks managed to kill it. I suspect, though, that its function remains, folded into some other agency.
