Data Rot!!

Here is a fun video on CBS about data rot. Around the 5:30 mark is a interesting bit about the Library of Congress and their attempts to digitize their collection.

  1. I have to say, still the open reel is a very long-lasting medium, unless of course used in the mid-1990s. Many of the tapes sold during that time were made poorly and shed, as discussed in the video. Anyway, interesting clip.
