Douglas Coupland: The clock strikes 13 in the archive world

“She tells me that a major issue with collecting anyone’s documents that were created after about 1990 is that the really desirable documents don’t physically exist … or, rather, they do exist but they’re lying comatose inside a 1995-ish laptop.”

A great read. I love the implications he leads us to, about what a digital archive of the future might look like and what kinds of information might be available.
