Ephemeral, lost, forgotten: how to help to preserve human history in an ever-changing world

October 28 @ Mozilla Festival, London, United Kingdom | Learning forum | English

If historians from the future had to study our current way of life, how easy would it be to retrieve records about our present — especially digital content?

With the growing popularity of social media, there’s a tendency of prioritizing the speed a message will be delivered rather than its longevity, and knowledge produced by collaborative efforts using services like Facebook and Twitter becomes progressively unretrievable given their closed and ephemeral nature.

This session invites you to reflect on our own ephemerality and our role in the preservation of human culture. We’ll learn about tools and collaborative projects focused on taking care of our digital history, and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of decentralised structures regarding their longevity, accessibility and easiness to use.
