Re: “How to Recognize the Historical Importance of Your Stuff

"Thank goodness I don't keep important records on flimsy, unreliable paper."

Unreliable? Accessing paper records requires nothing in the way of technology, only fingers and eyes. I can access paper records, some centuries old, that I have on hand in minutes. The information on my 5 1/4" floppies from the 90's? I'd have to pay a specialist to extract them and convert the files to be readable by current software. It's effectively gone forever. Similarly, I can put on LPs that my parents bought in the 50's and easily hear that music. Music files I downloaded to now obsolete computers in the 2000's? Again, effectively gone forever. There is nothing whatsoever inherently "reliable" about digitization.

Re: “McKibben Calls Shumlin's Divestment Dance 'Sad,' Slippery

It would be nice to see Mr. McKibben get so worked up about Middlebury College's greenwashing. While a horizontal drilling rig pushes "natural" gas pipeline to the College energy plant, and construction surges ahead on the enormous, unneeded new field house, accountants are busily working on how all these toys for rich girls and boys are in fact "carbon neutral."
