DPE cartoons explain digital preservation issues

The folks at DigitalPreservationEurope (DPE) are committed to making digital preservation materials available to a wide audience. They are creating a series of short animations aimed at the general public that introduce and explain digital preservation problems and solutions. DPE's goal is to make cartoons that summarize complex digital preservation issues in an entertaining way. The first one features “DigiMan” who explains “bit rot” and urges you to annotate your data with metadata and store it in a safe repository. Future animations will be released on their You Tube Channel.
