Why Archiving Is Important

Over on the New York Times, there is a story about a lost television recording of the last game of the 1960 World Series that has been found in a wine cellar of Bing Crosby. Aside from the Yankees losing that game, it is a nice reminder of the value of finding long-term storage solutions for our own archives. Right now, we have no idea what the value of our work will be to future audiences. How many other early televisions broadcasts, broadcasts that television stations and networks thought had no value, would we like to see?

Got your archiving system in place? If not, get to it.
