Digital preservation averts nuclear disaster!

The good people at Digital Preservation Europe have put together a great animated short that underscores the importance of good digital preservation practices: Team Digital Preservation prevents Team Chaos from wreaking havoc on a nuclear power plant. Bit rot, trusted digital repositories, metadata, and refreshing storage media have never been this fun!

I learned about this video via my colleague Monica Gray, who forwarded a message about this video that was posted to the listserv of the Association of Moving Image Archivists. Thanks, Monica!
