Digitisation of Pacific Countries
University of Melbourne
Greetings from "
Digitisation for Pacific cultural materials
from University of Melbourne, at
ANU Department of Pacific Affairs
. This is a fascinating presentation about
, an archive of digitized audio and other cultural material of the Pacific. One sad point was that
Tuvalu is considering a digital backup
of the country, if it disappears underwater, due to global warming. It will not be the first such endeavor as Estonia a ready backs up government data in some embassies in case the country is overrun, and government records are destroyed or must be erased to keep them out of enemy hands.
