Which famous service, likened by some to (1), is named after (2)?

Cracked by Rc , Achilles , udupendra , Goyal , Prasad , Priya , Ajay Parasuram , Dibyo , Rohan and shenoyvarun86.

Answer:

The Internet Archive crawls and archives copies of webpages chronologically. They call this service the Wayback Machine, a reference to the WABAC machine from the Rocky and Bullwinkle show (2). The Archive has been compared to the Library of Alexandria many times because of their similar roles in society (1)

    1) Egypt\’s legendary Library of Alexandria (The Wayback machine envisions and resembles this library)
    2) The WABAC(wayback) machine on The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show.

    Bibliotheca Alexandrina\’s Wayback machine gets its name from the WABAC(Wayback machine) from the cartoon series The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show where Mr.Peabody and Sherman enter the WABAC.

    1. Reconstruction of the Library at Alexandria
    2. Wayback Machine


  5. Prasad

    1 is the library at Alexandria (A library offers archiving service)
    2 is the WABAC (pronounced “wayback”) machine from the Peabody’s Improbable History segment of the early ’60’s cartoon series The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show.

    The famous service is the Internet Archive (Archive.org), which offers library and archiving service for web pages. Archive.org calls its internet archiving service The Wayback Machine after the machine in the series.
    Good one!
