Dear Mike,

On my list would be:  practices that have proven to lead to a result that is really robust enough to be called a long term solution.
One example: many organisations are still struggling with the surprises they get when migrating file formats, why can't we have tools that understands the peculiarities of the file formats and can deal with that.

met vriendelijke groet / kind regards,

Onderwerp: [Moims-dai] Desirable preservation ecosystem characteristics

Vint Cerf is a preservation evangelist, and in discussions and presentations he makes, he's considering adding this topic:  Desirable preservation ecosystem characteristics.  The idea is that if we know what we want the preservation environment to be 50 or 100 years from now, we will have be better equipped to chart a course (at least the first steps) to get there.  Vint asked me my opinion on that, and I'm asking the DAI WG community.

I'm doing this off the top of my head right now, so here goes my first cut at it:

Trustworthiness of archives:

*         A majority of archives that are certified trustworthy.

*         Broad community agreement on what constitutes trustworthiness and the process for certifying it.

*         Global prioritization of the need for certification of key archives.

Interoperability of archives:

*         Well understood and widely available user interface systems that function broadly for multi-archive access.

*         Archive-to-Archive communications that are easily and quickly configured.

*         Distributed archives that allow transparent access to all preserved data within their distributed "realm."

Access to archives (besides above):

*         (From the RDA) Data sharing without boundaries.  Social and technical infrastructure that enables open sharing of data.

*         Well-understood and easily-waiverable system of Intellectual Property management - for example, a system to quickly secure rights to download YouTube videos by national archivists.

*         Effective archive security that does not interfere with authorized user access.

Future tech:

*         Storage capacity:  A better, faster, cheaper More's Law.

*         AI Access to preservation archives; AI helpers that can assist archive users whether they are part of the Designated Community or not.

*         Auto-preservation...  Systems that automatically compile the *correct* metadata (Representation Info) as object data is generated.

*         AI systems that can generate warnings like "Uh oh... you're not compiling the correct metadata!"

What's on your list?

   -=- Mike
