leave a comment »

European researchers have deposited a “digital genome” time capsule inside a data storage facility known as the Swiss Fort Knox, which contains a blueprint that future generations can use to read data stored using obsolete technology. The capsule is the result of the four-year Planets project, which was launched to preserve the world’s digital assets as technology changes. http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE64H4GE20100519
