Bit Rot Stalks Your Digital Keepsakes

mwalker Re: Kodak FUD?| (535 comments)

No kidding. A trivial web search turns up these guys:

http://www.familyreserve.com/

Who appear to be a small outfit doing full digitization and restoration of old prints, as well as lifetime digital archiving. Depending on pricing it's that last point that would matter to me. I'm not going to endorse a vendor or anything but getting a service which does lifetime offsite digital backup of an entire photo collection sounds like a damn fine idea to me. If the house burns down, you can still get prints, you know? I guess the digital revolution also means you can get re-albumization, restoration, and all the rest out of slides and prints, but I kind of like the show-your-great-great-great-grandkids how (not)cool you were aspect too.
