PLANETS presentation from iPRES is available

The PLANETS web site announces that:
The presentation, given at the iPres 2006 conference, provides an overview of PLANETS with emphasis on preservation planning. It also includes a brief digression on the Office OpenXML file format and how it addresses some of the root causes of digital obsolescence. View the presentation [PPT, 2MB]
What is PLANETS? Again quoting the web site:
The Planets project brings together European National Libraries and Archives, leading research institutions, and technology companies to address the challenge of preserving access to digital cultural and scientific knowledge.
The web site contains additional information on this project, which was "kicked off" in June of this year.
