Subject: Re: 17.351 further reservations on preservation
Saying that saving everything means finding nothing is tantamount to saying
that we don't anticipate that our understanding of the creation of
ontologies to describe our digital objects are going to improve beyond
Dewey Decimal or that our search algorithms won't improve or scale. Don't
give up too soon is my motto; the 5% solution is a historically-constructed
effort to make new records look like old ones: full of lacunae.
