a lot of people read that leaked Facebook memo to mean Fb is threatened by federated platforms, but i think a more accurate reading is they fear hyperspecialized apps

digital formats are superior means of transmitting information — they can be copied losslessly and fitted into very small spans of time and space — but they're inferior means of storing it

if an alien species found a well-stored phonograph record, it wouldn't be hard for them to figure out how to play it. if they found a cd, they'd have no idea how to interpret it w/o knowledge of the file format and the compression algorithm. it'd be the equivalent of a one-time pad

no digital storage is truly long-term. where are you planning on storing the algorithms that enable you to read what's on your disk?
