Last Friday Ben Fino-Radin, digital repository manager at the Museum of Modern Art; and Lori Emerson, assistant professor of English and director of the Media Archaeology Lab at the University of Colorado at Boulder, convened at NYU ostensibly to discuss “New | Media Archives.” I was invited to write about their discussion for the lovely and exciting Nautilus, a new-ish science magazine, which I highly recommend. You can read my post, which was assigned the rather prolix headline, “Preserving Yesterday’s Tech to Get a Better Gasp on Today’s,” here.
