you are a museum curator and have to choose a digital cultural artifact to preserve. What do you choose?
e.g. the captcha
@entreprecariat the complete geocities archive
@entreprecariat does "flash content" count as an artifact?
@entreprecariat RealMedia. (RealAudio etc.)
There was so much great stuff from DJs, musicians, proto-podcasters, and vloggers in the 90s. The codecs are kind-of supported in VLC but not so reliable and ideally you would get the embedded player (plug-in) experience when poking around old archived sites.
@KnowPresent indeed, there was a panel at Transmediale about Realmedia vlogging and in fact a lot of material is apparently inaccessible
@entreprecariat A web without DRM.
@offline also DRM as an important cultural artifact
