As technological advances surge ahead at lightning speed, piles of floppy
disks, VHS tapes, and even stacks of old papers will likely become
impossible to extract information from. Even if the treasures hidden inside
could be accessed, sharing that information with others would be a hard
task still. So it's clear to people like Jason Scott, a free-range
archivist with the Internet Archive, that the solution is digitization.

The Internet Archive is a non-profit organization that keeps a digital
history of our collective digital detritus thanks to the Wayback Machine.
But they also log the physical stuff, too. And as more people discover its
secret trove of books, movies, and videos, they start getting ideas about
how to archive their own collection of information.

"The problems of our economy have occurred not as an outgrowth of
laissez-faire, unbridled competition.
They have occurred under the guidance of federal agencies, and under the
umbrella of federal regulations."
Senator Ted Kennedy, in defending trucking deregulation in 1978.
