‘The Digital Ice Age’

Interesting, I was reading through Archivists’ Blogs, and found a link to this Popular Mechanics article, December 2006 The Digital Ice Age. Just more to consider in thinking digitization is cool. It certainly is for the moment, but not for the long haul. Now to decide what to do with my 9,000 plus personal photos, hmmmm. Like Scarlet O’Hara in Gone With the Wind when Rhett left her at the end of the movie, ‘I’ll think about it tomorrow.’ Oh, wait, that might be too late.

    When I started scrapbooking, I had dreams of archiving all my photos, my mom’s photos, my in-laws photos…still not done.
    God forbid someone’s house burns down and takes all that history away.

    Susan, I agree 100%! I started with digitizing my great-grandparents’ photos, now my grandparents’ slides, next up my parents’ photos – which is a *huge* undertaking.
