  1. Alan Woods - Jenny Put The Kettle On

    Jenny Put the Kettle On is a series of informal chats and tunes with traditional gems of Leitrim in conversation with host, Vincent Woods. Vincent interviews several musicians, singers & dancers from Leitrim and surrounding areas that have had a significant & valuable impact on the traditional arts in the locality through their music, song, dance, research or collecting.

    The series got it’s name from a tune that uilleann piper Stephen Grier documented in his collection when residing in Gortletteragh, Co. Leitrim in the 1850s.

    This first interview, featuring Alan Woods, was held in the Baronial Hall at Lough Rynn Castle on Sunday the 9th of February 2020.

  2. Episode 7: The Computermen — The Last Archive

    In 1966, just as the foundations of the Internet were getting dreamed up…

    the federal government considered building a National Data Center. It would be a centralized federal facility to hold computer records from each federal agency, in the same way that the Library of Congress holds books and the National Archives holds manuscripts. Proponents argued that it would help regulate and compile the vast quantities of data the government was collecting. Quickly, though, fears about privacy, government conspiracies, and government ineptitude buried the idea. But now, that National Data Center looks like a missed opportunity to create rules about data and privacy before the Internet took off. And in the absence of government action, corporations have made those rules themselves.

  3. Video and audio from my closing keynote at Friday’s Grand Re-Opening of the Public Domain / Boing Boing

    On Friday, hundreds of us gathered at the Internet Archive, at the invitation of Creative Commons, to celebrate the Grand Re-Opening of the Public Domain, just weeks after the first works entered the American public domain in twenty years.

    I had the honor of delivering the closing keynote, after a roster of astounding speakers. It was a big challenge and I was pretty nervous, but on reviewing the saved livestream, I’m pretty proud of how it turned out.

    Proud enough that I’ve ripped the audio and posted it to my podcast feed; the video for the keynote is on the Archive and mirrored to Youtube.

    The whole event’s livestream is also online, and boy do I recommend it.

  5. Abby Smith Rumsey on Remembering, Forgetting, and When We Are No More - Econlib

    You might think your tweets on Twitter belong to you. But in 2010, the Library of Congress acquired the entire archive of Twitter. Why would such a majestic library acquire such seemingly ephemeral material? Historian Abby Smith Rumsey, author of When We Are No More, talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about this decision of the Library of Congress and the general challenge of how to cope with a world when so much of what we write and read is digital. Subjects discussed include what we can learn from the past, the power of collective memory, what is worth saving, and how we might archive our electronic lives so that we and those who come after us can find what we might be looking for.

  7. Setting the Record Straight by Going Wayback

    The public web is a fact checker’s dream, but not everything stays up forever. More than just an invaluable contribution to collective memory, the practice of web crawling, indexing and archiving empowers the research and journalism that is ultimately required to speak truth to power.

    Speaker: Mark Graham - Director, the Wayback Machine, The Internet Archive

  8. The Far Future

    How do we prepare for the distant future? Helen Keen meets the people who try to.

    If our tech society continues then we can leave data for future generations in huge, mundane quantities, detailing our every tweet and Facebook ‘like’. But how long could this information be stored? And if society as we know it ends, will our achievements vanish with it? How do we plan for and protect those who will be our distant descendants and yet may have hopes, fears, languages, beliefs, even religions that we simply cannot predict? What if anything can we, should we, pass on?
