  • ¬†Very clear that once content goes digital, distinction is magnified. Once in digital form, items continue to have meaning, but the meaning may be altered. One can argue that the narrative form was optimized for codex, but in electronic form approaches change. Search, index. (Ex. 1 scribe notes, 1c-B)
  • Ultimately [project] may well end with archiving, preserving, and distributing the end results. (Ex. 2 scribe notes, 1c-A)
  • Putting archives online is new work. (Ex. 4 scribe notes, 1b-E)
  • they have this problem too in ling; there is one ontology becoming more and more accepted the task of the researcher isn't to reinvent ideology but to provide a mapping and another problem is search: approaching a situation where no one has to throw anything away so how do you find the valuable pieces of information when you archive everything? (Ex. 4 scribe notes, 1b-B)
  • web archiving: policy constraints and restrictions (Ex. 5 scribe notes, 1b-B)
  • "Linguists talk about archiving stuff, when they mean slapping it up on a website, and that's not archiving, in my view." (Ex. 5 scribe notes, 1b-B)
  • stuff like reviews moving from journals to the web; will that make book reviews less considered for tenure and promotion questions? And are they being archived by libraries? (Ex. 5 scribe notes, 1b-B)
