The Collective Working to Save VHS Tapes Before They Decay | Mental Floss

Wednesday, June 7th, 2017

This article is a hard read, it’s sad to know that VHS tapes, something that is a big part of many lives, won’t be usable any more after a couple of decades.

Though on the bright side, the article mentions that digital doesn’t last forever, either. As someone who hates digital, that made me happy.

Though it means that we need a format for preserving things. I hope we find it.

Interestingly enough, the article states that film is a more preservable format than tape or digital… I always thought film and tape were one and the same… I guess you learn something new every day.
