    Thank goodness for ancient garbage. It is so revealing. Wonder what archeologists will say about us in 1,000 years.

    Well, for early civilizations, the had cave art, then sculpture, then paintings, and before the turn of the 19th Century, we had photographs.

     

    Throughout the 20th Century, we continued to have photographs and along with film, or at least film that was carefully stored and preserved, near the end of the 20th Century, we have the beginnings of the digital age.

     

    One thing that has always concerned me, is although print and film has a shorter life expectancy than cave art, sculpture, and paintings, et al; once it is printed, it is easy to distribute as no technology is necessary to view and review.

     

    Unfortunately, the technology to view and distribute analog and digital media has already changed since I began typing this comment. What assurances do we have future generations will still have the ability to view and study media prepared in the 21st Century?

     

    We may be cooking over open fires and living in caves or shelters…
