  3. Digital archaeology and the temporary nature of technology - Future Tense - ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

    As our fast paced digital world continues what does that mean for the way we think about preserving things like old webpages and obsolete media formats. Are there possible lessons from our digital past for our digital future? We explore the fragility of our electronic data and also the temporary nature of the technology we use to access it. We also join the excavation of a 1970s computer chip - called the 6502!

    Guests:
    Finn Brunton, Assistant Professor of Digital Environments at the University of Michigan’s School of Information.
    Jim Boulton, Curator of the ‘Digital Archaeology’ exhibition and Deputy Managing Director of Story Worldwide.
    Greg James, Digital archaeologist, part of the visual 6502 team and software engineer.
    Brewster Kahle, Digital Librarian and Founder of the Internet Archive.
    Paul Koerbin, Manager of web archiving at the National Library of Australia.

  4. Douglas Coupland & William Gibson - Key West Literary Seminar Audio Archives

    Douglas Coupland and William Gibson discuss culture, technology, and the craft of writing. Communications technologies are a global memory prosthesis, says Gibson, and aspire to an experience in which distinctions between the "virtual" and the "real" are dissolved. We are already the borg, Gibson says.

  5. Innovating & Developing with Libraries, Archives

    For centuries, libraries, archives, and museums have been creating structured data, organizing information, and managing metadata in order to organize and share cultural artifacts and knowledge with the public. Unfortunately, the bulk of these systems have evolved in isolation, long before the advent of the World Wide Web. However, the convergence of developments in culture and technology are resulting in exciting new ways for individuals and developers alike to interact directly with unprecedented amounts of structured data, historical photos and archives, and more. Expert developers and project managers in this field will lead a discussion focused on the question: How can developers leverage open data from libraries, archives and museums being made available to the public? Panelists will review new developments and highlight examples, considering use cases with Linked Data, Flickr Commons, Smithsonian Commons, mobile apps, and scalability.
