SXSW 2012: Should Web Sites And Video Games Be Preserved Like Art Is?

SXSW 2012: Should Web Sites And Video Games Be Preserved Like Art Is? 

Presented by Jason Scott, adjunct archivist at Internet Archive, Kari Kraus, assistant professor at the University of Maryland, and Nick Hasty, director of technology at Rhizome.

The “Preserving the Creative Culture of the Web” panel at SXSW addressed an interesting question: “Should web sites and artifacts be treated like works of art or architecture?” Our three panelists discussed how these artifacts, along with video games, internet forums and user-generated forums, have cultural relevance, and it’s important to save them.

“The internet community as a whole hasn’t done a great job of doing that,” Hasty said.
