(Critical) Data Autonomy: digital archiving for an uncertain future

    Research output: Other contributionPopular

    Abstract

    By introducing the Cloud as the ultimate solution to future proof our data storage, Google and other Big Tech corporations ensured that our digital infrastructures now depend on these large investments. A part of what we store in the cloud, is our digital past. Our dependence on digital technologies is growing, but its structural ecological impact is only just starting to be discussed. Does the power of Big Tech means that our digital memory is at risk? Do we really want to save everything in the Cloud?
