Some wonder about the old Archive, where they are, and where they are going to. Some think they should be in libraries or museums, but then the who idea of mail-art vanishes and lands eventually in places we tried to avoid.

The digital archives are another problem. Facebook isn't an archive. It is a commercial tool of data the organisation turns into money.

This NING social network is a tricky one. When the hosting isn't paid for, or the hosting firms goes away, all data is lost?  Well, I do make a backup of this archive (over 100 Gbyte is has become now), but is is just the images and the texts in .JSON files. How to access those when NING isn't arround?  That will be a problem for the next generation. I also know that www.archive.org keeps track of this website, so there is a large archive as well of all the data we collect here together. The webcrawlers follow every link and store the data for the next generations. How clever is that.
