We digitize our images and sounds and texts in the expectation that this somehow provides these objects with immortality. Sadly, we may, instead, be creating a digital dark age in which our descendants will know nothing of our history and the products of our society. The physical media for digital storage may degrade; the ability to read the stored bits may be lost; the ability to correctly interpret the bits and render them or execute them may be lost. Operating systems, hardware and applications may no longer work for a variety of reasons. Companies and their proprietary software may go out of business and their products not work on computers in the future. Virtual machines and cloud computing may have a role to play but legal regimes and business models will also determine whether long-term preservation is feasible.
