More than 1 million torrents, says Internet Archive

Internet Archive now offers more than 1 million torrents — movies, books and audio.

Old and very often bad B movies are generally what come to mind when people think about the Internet Archive. With the news that the group has added more than 1 million torrents — movies, books and music — there are a lot more reasons, including Isaac Asimov radio plays (good stuff), to think about the Internet Archive.

“The Internet Archive is now offering over 1 million torrents including our live music concerts, the Prelinger movie collection, the librivox audio book collection, feature films, old time radio, lots and lots of books, and all new uploads from our patrons into Community collections (with more to follow),” writes Brewster for the Internet Archive.

All you need is a good BitTorrent (I recommend Transmission) and then find something interesting to download. That said, a good place to start is the Internet Archive’s Hot Lists.

Also, many of the site’s movies are available for web viewing, including on mobile devices, like the iPhone and iPad — very progressive.

Yup, torrents are good and 1 million torrents are great…
