    Who knew? Anyhow, I am continuing with my destruction and mayhem, and I am counting the days until Gorman is gone.

    Good thing he can’t be re-elected, unlike some officials. Oh god, he can’t be, can he?

    I think it’s a bit misguided, of course, but I still think that it’s an interesting point– and one that I don’t entirely disagree with. The notion of the utter lack of hard copy, the ultimate complete transience of all digital information, is terrifying; the knowledge that so much information can be lost so quickly is kind of disheartening. I know, I know; redundancies upon redundancies, and all that. But all it takes is one big-ass magnetic pulse and all that information’s fucked.

    I agree that the fluidity of the web presents some challenging archival questions. I think the nature of it is what makes the internet interesting, that it is never the same, always changing.

    I do not agree with Gorman though when he adds the “amatuer” bit in the argument. So I am not the authority on libraries, politics, or life, but my opinion still MATTERS.
