MEMORY IN UNCERTAINTY: Web preservation in the polycrisis
How do we save the past in a violent present for an uncertain future?
In cooperation with the Webrecorder project and through a grant from the Filecoin Foundation, New Design Congress examines the state of today's #web #preservation practice and its relationship to the world. This major report evaluates the current state of web preservation and the broader #social and #political contexts of web archiving tools and practice. Informed by 3 years of broader NDC #research, threat modelling with the Webrecorder team, and qualitative interviews with preservation practitioners, this report details key threats, challenges and opportunities for developers, funders and policymakers working to support this vital field.
@shibacomputer This report is great. What makes it particularly interesting is that in many cases it describes web archiving practices that weren't even possible before Webrecorder tools existed.
@despens the potential is wild, i do think we are on the verge of a pretty big rethink of lots of different types of systems
A fediverse community for discussions around cultural freedom, experimental, new media art, net and computational culture, and things like that.
