Today I’m launching a new tech blog, called “Files That Last.” As you might guess, its subject is digital preservation. Why do we need another preservation blog? Perhaps “we” don’t, where we’re mostly people closely connected with libraries and archives, but it’s a topic that’s ripe for more attention from the general computer-tech community, as everyone relies increasingly on computer files for long-term memory. Its focus will be practical guidance. Since it’s a solo operation, I’ll be able to say things the Library of Congress really shouldn’t.
I’ll be running that blog on a more regular schedule than this one, with weekly posts. Please drop by, and if you like what you see please spread the word.
