My years of waiting have been rewarded with a message from Bill Barker of Schwa himself!

Did you know there is someone archiving the internet?
This works the advantage of people who are interested in internet-archaeology.
Previous incarnations of the schwa website
OMFG this is pretty cool but slow. Kinda like my dialup days.

404 not found
the schwa corporation's website about inchoateincoherentinformation seems to be a 404 not found thing, because any website address affixed to the "/" after "theschwacorporation" leads to that page.

It begins.
Now, I don't know anything at all about why schwa disappeared, only that it happened in late 2001.  If my memory serves, it was a few weeks after the attacks of september 11th. 
The schwa Corporation was invented by Bill Barker, presumably in the book "the World Operations Manual" or some previous work of his. 
The World Operations Manual is a spoof both on conspiracy theory and the machiavellian uber branding we all face.  Information is catch-as-catch-can at this point.  The trail is cold, so it'll take some pretty knowledgeable folks to help me find information regarding this.  Thanks for your time.
