All Our Yesterdays

Our communication methods have improved over time, from stone tablets, papyrus, and vellum through to the printing press and the World Wide Web. But while the web has democratised publishing, allowing anyone to share ideas with a global audience, it doesn’t appear to be the best medium for preserving our cultural resources: websites and documents disappear down the digital memory hole every day. This presentation will look at the scale of the problem and propose methods for tackling our collective data loss.

  1. Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow Creeps in this petty pace

    om day to day To the last syllable of recorded time; And all our yesterdays have lighted fools e way to dusty death.
