Digital Preservation: Video of Tim O’Reilly’s Keynote at 2011 NDIIPP/NDSA Meeting Now Online

The video of Tim O’Reilly’s 2011 keynote address was made available (again?) earlier today by the Library of Congress.

It was recorded on Tuesday, July 19, 2011. 

Bill LeFurgy summarized O’Reilly’s remarks this way:

O’Reilly stressed the preservation role of people working outside of institutions. He called for “baking in” more preservation functionality into tools used to create and distribute digital content to enable a more distributed stewardship mindset.  This is important because “the things that turn out to be historic are not thought to be historic at the time.”   O’Reilly also said one of the most tweetable bits at the meeting: “Digital preservation won’t be just the concern of specialists, it will be the concern of everyone.”
