The Save Button Ruined Everything: Backing Up Our Digital Heritage

A session at dConstruct 2012

Friday 7th September, 2012

3:30pm to 4:00pm (GMT)

Jason Scott is a man on a mission — save all the things.

But what does “save” mean in the modern world, in the waterfall of personal and private data, and where do we even begin? Turning on the history-o-matic, Jason provides a backdrop to our attempts to “save”, what has been done, and what we can do. The talk will be fast-paced and loud, like a hard drive at the end of its life.
