CBS on data rot

David Mattison of the Ten Thousand Year Blog posted about this CBS article on data rot. It’s another solid sign that the greater populace is running into real problems with digital longevity. Two years ago I was faced with blank stares and people asking me, “what do you mean, I won’t be able to read my files in five years?”  Now they’re talking about it on CBS news. The problem is here and real and we in the trenches are taking note.
