TEDxValenciaSt - Mark Christian - Long-Lived Data

Mark Christian owns what is perhaps the largest collection of Laserdisc movies west of the Mississippi. Mark is concerned that the rapid pace of technological change (and the inherent instability of digital technology) is dooming us to a future case of amnesia about our present history. We have leather-bound books of land surveys and laws from a thousand years ago, but we can't read data tapes with scientific measurements from the first moon landing. In his talk entitled "Long-Lived Data," he explored this issue in the context of the BBC's Domesday Project.About TEDx, x = independently organized eventIn the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
