        Do We Need a Better Archive of the Internet? | PBS Idea Channel

        The internet is an archive, but it may not be as effective as we think. It saves any media we can imagine (text, photographs, films, etc.), but what about information from the network? Status updates, tweets, image macros... they all seem to disappear into the ether. Are they not worth as much to us as physical objects? We archive things so we can remember them, so is this network ephemera not worth remembering?
