Featured Conversation: Deep Archives

How can we create a permanent vessel to preserve human knowledge for the distant future? Futurist librarian and Long Now Foundation intern Heath Rezabek started a thread exploring the possibilities for extremely long term preservation and imagining alternatives to storing information in a purely electronic form.

    By the way, I really appreciated the shout out to this thread in the bulletin. Beyond any interest on my own part, I think the question is only going to grow in relevance.

    I wondered what might be a next step if I were interested in forming an ongoing Project Hieroglyph project around this effort.

    In the meantime, I’ll definitely continue to post updates to the topic, and look for other voices.
