Résumé de la vidéo

However much it enables us to ask new questions with an expanded set of tools, the digital is ultimately not about the digital. Rather it is about new ways of engaging and interacting with the world: it’s about extending our cognitive faculties and social existences; new ways to analyze and experience the past in the present; new ways to work, think, share, and enjoy; new ways to make things, even tradition-bound things like scholarly books. With this altered field the question of new genres and knowledge forms looms large and my keynote address will be concerned with an experiment with the interactive www-documentary form entitled Cold Storage. Cold Storage is an extension of a printed book (The Library Beyond the Book), the output of a research seminar built upon three years of work in metaLAB's Library Test Kitchen design studio, and a reworking/remixing of Alain Resnais's 1956 Toute la mémoire du monde (with the BNP swapped for the analog server farm known as the Harvard Depository).
