The best archive for digital media is… analog media

at the end of the day, media that requires primitive playback devices, will probably have the best chance for longevity. i’d like to think that the categories are socratic: biological, elemental, and mechanical. any singular or combination of these can re-play analog media. for example photographs and cinema film (light and eyes), audio records (mechanical and ears), and storytelling/singing (eyes and voice).
