Digital Preservation Seeds

Digital Preservation Seeds 

At conferences about digital preservation, we often hear the same stories about things that went wrong first and (in some cases)how it was repaired afterwards: ” Luckily some of the lost bits were saved”. The Domesday book, the Viking mission to Mars etcetera.

On the  Atlas of Digital Damages I collected some of these well known stories. However the list is limited. The incidents I found so far, mainly occurred in the US, and quite often more than 5 years ago or even longer. I doubt whether there were no incidents in the last 5 years or so.
