I mentioned yesterday an article that had been published in the New York Times, "The Afterlife Is Expensive for Digital Movies." That article generated an interesting and thoughtful discussion on the SAA Archives & Archivists list, that is definitely worth reading. Richard Hess, in an email message to me, said that some of the claims in the NYT article may be overblown. As mentioned on the SAA list, when you read the article, you must remember that they are discussing Hollywood-style films. You must also remember that they article was written for the masses, not for those of us who are involved in digitization.
