In today’s digital newsrooms, a software/hardware crash can wipe out decades of text, photos, videos and applications in a fraction of a second. Digital archives can easily become obsolete due to evolving formats and digital systems used by modern media, not to mention media failure, bit-rot and link-rot. Dodging the Memory Hole is an ongoing series of outreach events originated by JDNA that are designed to facilitate cooperation, collaboration and alignment among media companies, memory institutions and other stakeholders committed to preserving the “first rough draft of history” created in digital formats. 

We're holding our next event, Dodging the Memory Hole 2016: Saving Online News, in conjunction with the Educopia Institute and the University of California, Los Angeles Library. Join us Oct. 13-14, 2016, at UCLA's Charles E. Young Research Library.
