Below is a link to an article published in Rolling Stone yesterday that people on the list may be interested in. It's titled "File Not Found: The Record Industry's Digital Storage Crisis". Though there are some irksome things in the article (not the least of which is the sub-sub-title "Vinyl and analog tapes last forever, but hard drives fail and digital formats change"), I think it communicates an important message to the public about digital preservation challenges. Articles such as this in magazines like Rolling Stone certainly help to raise awareness, broaden the conversation and deepen understanding of the general public.
