Subject: RE: Digitisation Nightmare
Losing recordings of music is one thing, but we are heading that way with everything. We can read (at least at the alphabetic level) documents from 3000BC up to around 1970 with comparative ease and in terms of images much further back than that. I wonder how much of our modern stuff will be decipherable in 5000 years?
