To build future-safe archives for preserving idea we need to be able to transfer those ideas, not merely store them. Like in the old times with oral traditions knowledge have been passed from generation to generation, now and in the future we should think of ways to transfer our digital archives, blogs and so forth, from storage to storage: from our hard disks to the cloud, from tumblr to WordPress, from Flickr to Zooomr, and so on. Transfer data from today’s services to tomorrow’s.
There are many services available for hosting our data and our thoughts, but transfering those data among services is complicated and partial, if even possible.
Who knows about ways to operate such transfers?
