Information Longevity Talk in Gothenburg

On Tuesday 17 November 17:30 I’m giving a talk as part of Mathias Klang’s information security course at the University of Gothenburg. The theme is “Årtusendenas glömska: arkivsäkring i det riktigt långa perspektivet”, which may hint to the intelligent reader that I’ll be speaking in Swedish. I’ll cover ways that information has survived from the distant past, and aspects of how data from archaeological sites and museum collections can be safeguarded for a long future.

The lecture is free and open to the public. The venue is at Forskningsgången 6, square 2, floor 2, on the premises of IT-Universitetet on Lindholmen. Hope to see blog readers there!

    Will you summarize your talk in English here for those of us whose Swedish is seriously weak? We’d be delighted to hear what you have to say.

    You would have seen me if it wasn´t for my smallest childs third birthday.
    I guess my wife would have been interesting as well as she is reeducating herself from beeing archaeologist to a career managing archives.

    I am sure that your wife is very interesting, and that’s so generous of you, Leif. But I am married, you know.
