Thread Name: Digitisation Nightmare
Subject: RE: Digitisation Nightmare
Except that magnetic audio tapes last a good deal longer than 25 years.
Gonna be the same thing with digital photos- unlike the photo archives from the Covil War, WWI, etc. a hundred years from now there won't be much of a photographic record of the 21st Century- except, of course, for the few photos taken with film.
The rush to digitize library/archive/museum collections will also prove to be misguided for the same reason.
But you can't convilce the Technology Worshippers.
