Online content disappears Web consultant Terry Kuny puts it this way: “There are new barbarians at the gate. … We are moving into an era where much of what we know today, much of what is coded and written electronically, will be lost forever. We are … living in the midst of Digital Dark Ages.”(Pole) From: Mary Sharp via http://rebeccasnotepad.wordpress.com/2012/05/01/theresa-hungry-digital-tiger-waiting-for-us-all/ AuthenticStorytelling.net @ctrappe
