How do you define digital preservation? What is the relationship between that and a digital repository and management system? 🤔

(Inspired by @cm_harlow@twitter.com tweet, thought digipres.club is the best place to ask this question.)

@joshuatj Digital preservation is access, in the future. So if you’re not able to access the content now, you’re not preserving it.

for no reason, the memory of "_why the lucky stiff" en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Why_the_ has flashed in my head.

at that time i was very attracted by hoodwink.d, basically an idea of web annotation 10 years ago

I’m trying an experiment in opening up how we run our open source projects. If you’re interested in what we’re up to at the UK Web Archive feel free to drop in during our Online Hours... blogs.bl.uk/webarchive/2018/05

PWP's not done yet, so it's an "ongoing attempt" rather than a "previous" one.

Would love help on it regardless!

There is some interesting work going on at the w3c & ietf on packaging web content for offline use:


A big part of their focus (compared to previous efforts) seems to be on using service workers to deliver content offline in such a way that the authenticity can be verified without an internet connection.
