Digital archaeology

A session at Horizons

  • Steven Goodwin

Saturday 5th May, 2012

1:15pm to 2:00pm (GMT)

In a few years' time, it will be impossible to study the history of home computers: the cassette tapes are physically disintegrating, the hardware is dying, and the software is encumbered by software "protection". This talk outlines the issues of digital archeology, the methods necessary to preserve our computing legacy, and how emulation can help with this endeavour.
