Here’s an interesting segment from CBS Sunday Morning from March 1, 2009 in which NY Times Technology writer David Pogue talks about data preservation. There are some great pictures from the Computer History Museum in Silicon Valley — and don’t miss Pogue’s interview with the museum’s curator Dag Spicer. One of the most memorable quotes is from Don Menerick (sp?), Archivist @ NY Public Library:
“…there’s a consensus that as the ability to store more and more data, the data itself has become less and less reliable.”
