Memory of the Information Society

The Internet sharpens the issues of the digital world and heritage. It obliges us to reconsider all our certainties about the very meaning of the word “preserve”, a meaning which comes to us from the remotest of past ages when humans for the first time inscribed what they knew on objects that were longer-lasting than they were, so that their memory could traverse the generations and reach us.
