DeadMediaWorry

From the History-Net? list, I got word about these pages:

Consensus Emerging On CD/DVD Life

NIST Special Publication 500-252: Digital Data Preservation Program
http://www.itl.nist.gov/div895/carefordisc/

Gov't Computer News

I wonder if we might relate some worries about dying media to MonoCulture. If all your data is preserved on punched cards, and eventually there are no functioning card readers, you're in trouble unless you've diversified your storage by making additional copies on diskettes or CDs or paper. KH
