Digital Preservation

BoingBoing covers digital preservation at the Library of Congress with an extremely long post, heaps of pictures, and clips.

The part on film and video preservation is especially impressive. Vaults to store the 100 000 - 150 000 items they receive every year (film, sound, and apparently what is likely the largest collection of the most violent video games on the planet!). They even have formats I have never heard of (RCA Selectavision?).

Fascinating. But who has time to watch any of it?
