The cursor archive is 60,000 collectively-sourced mouse cursors from Geocities-era internet.

With content ranging from sparkle text to Pokemon to penises to political statements, these 32-pixel wide cursors function as documents of both their time and their makers.With the adoption of Web 2.0 standards, animated cursors have ceased to be supported- so many in the collection are now fossils.
