Documentary Filmmaker, Digital Historian And Archive Team Founder Jason Scott Discusses Preservation Activism

Wednesday May 23, 2012: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room

There's a lot of information floating around on the Web - can it be saved from distinction and obscurity? Discover how digital information is preserved and archived when Jason Scott visits the AADL. Jason is the founder of the Archive Team, a loose collective of rogue archivists, programmers, writers and loudmouths dedicated to saving our digital heritage.

At this special event, Jason will discuss the Archive Team's efforts to preserve early Internet content from extinction. He will also screen and discuss a lost episode from his 2010 film Get Lamp: The Text Adventure Documentary.
