Coming from a Library & Information Science background, I am always excited when I see resources getting archived -- especially online (despite my reservations about the amount of power it takes to keep all those servers up and running). The web started off as an information commons, where anyone with access could peruse or post their own contributions to the growing pool of knowledge. I was reading the WNYC blog and came across this article about the 2012 WebWise Conference, which focused on "Tradition and Innovation;" mostly dealing with the challenges and opportunities that come along with archiving in the digital age.
One of the things the blog mentions is Fugazi's Live Series archives, which will eventually hold 800 live shows... I've liked this band for going on fifteen years, so it's pretty cool that I'll get to listen to shows that they were playing when I was in kindergarten! Another thing it mentioned was the Oral History Metadata Synchronizer, which I interviewed Doug Boyd about awhile back.
Oh- and this reminds me- we (as in, the podcast team here at UK A&S) are going to be putting our podcasts up on archive.org over the summer. I'm pretty excited that they'll be there, time-capsuled for posterity, and so even more people can access our materials and learn about all the cool stuff going on at A&S!
