"...if you can digitize it, you can vaporize it"

Interesting article from Miller-McCune magazine on the threat of "unpublishing" digital resources and the general difficulties of preserving digital archives and newspapers.

Ephemeral or not, I had a great time breaking from diss. work today to explore historic tours posted on vimeo. Such a range, from institutionally sponsored tours to tourists' own take on what counts as notable and historic in any given place. I did run across award-winning vodcasts from Steve Bull, who, along with others, received NCPH's Outstanding Public History Project Award two years ago. The vodcasts were a complement to the N-Y Historical Society's Slavery in New York series.

Frederick Douglass Landing: Video Tour 1 of 6 from Steve Bull on Vimeo.
