Pioneering Internet Archivists Brewster Kahle and Rick Prelinger on Preservation in the Digital Age

Pioneering Internet Archivists Brewster Kahle and Rick Prelinger on Preservation in the Digital Age from Democracy Now! on Vimeo.

Internet archi­vists Brewster Kahle and Rick Prelinger dis­cuss their efforts to build both a phy­si­cal and digi­tal library of every book ever publis­hed on Democracy Now! August 24. “The idea is to build a library of Alexandria, ver­sion two,” says Kahle. “It costs us about 10 cents a page or about $30 a book to pho­to­graph and then make it acces­si­ble and searchable for anyone.” The archi­vists also dis­cuss their home movie pro­ject. “Home movies are asto­nis­hing. They’re per­so­nal not cor­po­rate expres­sion,” says Prelinger. “They’re indi­vi­du­als wit­nessing history, not sim­ply great events but also history ever­y­day life.” The movies are being con­tri­bu­ted by fami­lies and res­cued from estate sales, among other sources.
