HOPE Conference Speech: “Preserving Digital History” —

The talk I gave at the Fifth HOPE Conference over the weekend is now available online. “Saving Digital History, a Quick and Dirty Guide” is an overview of the issues and perspectives in collecting digital artifacts, an explanation of how integrity and perfection are not always salient attributes, and a good heaping bucket of odd trivia.

I record all my own talks, augmenting what the conferences do themselves (in the case of HOPE, they had an excellent staff and stage manager that kept things going smoothly), and this allows me to be quick with the full content. It also falls into my general theme of life: save things yourself if you want them to be saved.

I also have a number of photographs I took in three galleries.
