Jason Scott

Wanted: dead or alive

As computer history finally gets to sit at the adults’ table, sidling into an empty chair and looking around nervously, it’s up to us living in the present day to help bring it up to speed. Unfortunately, we’ve been a tad lacking in the world of data and digital preservation, with some items amazingly preserved and prepared for the centuries, while others descend into obscurity and oblivion. In a high-paced and occasionally hilarious look at death and disappearance, you’ll follow Jason down a path of solutions, trivia, loss, and ultimately redemption. Solve problems you didn’t know you had! Learn things you didn’t know merited thought! Wonder where this is all leading! Be surprised when you find out!
