Business Models and Financial Incentives: February 5th, 2018
In 2018 the Internet Society New York Chapter (ISOC-NY), with the support of Google, has embarked on a new project to explore and define Digital Preservation principles, protocols, and practices. This is the second event in the series with a keynote from Vint Cerf, Chief Internet Evangelist for Google.
- February 5th, 5:30 – 7:30pm at Google NYC — focusing on business / financial motives
- Wine and light snacks will be served
This time, appropriately for NYC, our focus will specifically be on the fiscal and entrepreneurial aspects, and we are certainly looking to engage the NYC tech and VC community. However, all aspects of digital preservation will be on the table. Don’t miss this unique conversation, facilitated by one of the fathers of the Internet.
While in-person participation is recommended, the session will be livestreamed via the following channels
Remote participation via Twitter: @isocny + #digitalpreservation
Please join us in person or online!
**Please bring a valid photo ID for in-person attendance as security in the building is strict.

ABOUT DIGITAL PRESERVATION
Our culture and society has been enriched by the creation and proliferation of the Internet. Information has become increasingly more accessible and has enabled so many of us to become active creators rather than passive consumers of content. With that, we’re experiencing an explosive growth of digital data, with 2.5 quintillion bytes of data created every day and that data needs a place to live.
Not only does our data need a place to live, but it needs a place to survive into the future. What happens if years from now, we are no longer able to access our photos, documents, music — essentially all the records of our lives? We will not only be forgotten, but we’ll be thrusting the future into a ‘digital dark age’.
