Overview:

Imagine a future where humans are unable to access the data, literature, art, photographs, discoveries, and vital records of previous generations. That bleak future may be on the horizon! Learn how our fragile, rapidly-obsolete systems of storing data could lead to a digital dark age. This video comes with discussion questions.
