Snow Byte & the Seven Formats: A Digital Alzheimers Fairy Tale [video]

May 19, 2014  |  Adoption, Digitalisation

The wish for digitisation and its adoption initiatives are of course very important. But measured over the time it is perhaps even more important to ask how we can ensure that we can continue to make use of digitises information in the very future?

Not important, do you think? Then you’ll be disappointed. It is a already becoming a widespread problem. Vint Cerf, one of the fathers of the internet, warned about this last year during a lecture. He indicated that Microsoft Office 2011 on his computer could no longer open a PowerPoint presentation from 1997. Cerf stressed that it is often extremely difficult to preserve old documents with formats, because they often can no longer be read.

In short, this is one of the problems of the future, if we do not start with paying attention from now on. Just look at this video on Youtube.
