  • Really is excellent work in C d S. Cited a lot for a reason. Will talk later, but one bit was controversial in an interesting way? € 100 billion estimate: great -- or an excuse to do nothing? an unwinnable political battle, adding dependencies outside our controlEconomics is central
  • Archivists are always going to struggle. Here’s a forecast from IDC, a US market research company and EMC, a storage vendor showing how gap between what might be and what is preserved will keep getting wider ... production overwhelms storage ... and always will. But other costs are less predictable.
  • Huge variance / order of magnitude, even two orders of magnitude all from a EU project called Numeric that surveyed LAMs
  • Hardly definitive, really, it’s suggestive but again shows wide range of estimates and prices
  • Example: NIH is about to delete a petabyte or so of sequence data
  • But one potential benefit all that cost modeling is to get to pay once model And here we are, right at the boundary between the commercial and non commercial world ... different values, competencies on each side of that border SO WHAT IS THE RIGHT ROLE FOR COMMERCE www.cni.org/tfms/2010b.fall/Abstracts/Presentations/cni_nsf_goldstein.ppt https://prestoprimews.ina.fr/public/deliverables/PP_WP2_D2.1.1_preservati onstrategies_R0_v1.00.pdf
  • Normally all for provenance.

    1. 1. Summing Up <ul><li>Jeff Ubois </li></ul><ul><li>Beeld en Geluid </li></ul>
    2. 2. Agenda <ul><li>Themes from StF </li></ul><ul><li>A bit more on economics </li></ul><ul><li>New patterns of production & PDA </li></ul>
    3. 3. Themes (I) <ul><li>Structures for collaboration </li></ul><ul><li>Vendor relations </li></ul><ul><li>Software development & FOSS </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Internal (cataloging, tracking, QA) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>External (web facing) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>FOSS </li></ul></ul>
    4. 4. Marshall McLuhan <ul><li>“ New media contain old media” </li></ul><ul><li>New media evolves by incorporating old media </li></ul><ul><li>Archives and rich media contain all previous media -- text, image, audio, video </li></ul>
    5. 6. Economics <ul><li>Predictability: What do expenses & income look like, long term? </li></ul><ul><li>Boundaries: what is the relation between the commercial & non-commercial sectors? </li></ul><ul><li>Institutions / Individuals: top down vs bottom up approaches to preservation </li></ul>
    6. 7. Demand/Supply <ul><li>Society’s ever-increasing demands for vast amounts of data to be kept for the future are not matched by suitably lavish funds. Thus, absent a technological miracle, bit preservation is a problem with which we are doomed to struggle indefinitely. - David S.H. Rosenthal </li></ul>
    7. 8. The Deficit
    8. 9. Predictability <ul><li>Predictable costs essential for organizations that promise long term access </li></ul><ul><li>Ingest, storage, other costs vary </li></ul><ul><li>Complex cost models illustrate more uncertainty (LIFE, CET, KRDS, DANS) </li></ul>
    9. 10. Reported Scanning Costs <ul><li>Text pages: €0.1 - €0.8 / page </li></ul><ul><li>Images €0.72 - 6 / page </li></ul><ul><li>Audio: €6.42 - €78.84 / hour </li></ul><ul><li>Videotape: €5.46 - €120 /hour </li></ul><ul><li>Film: €8 - €1040 / hour </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Source: Numeric </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>
    10. 11. Storage costs
    11. 14. Complex Cost Models <ul><li>LIFE, LIFE2, LIFE3 </li></ul><ul><li>NASA’s CET </li></ul><ul><li>CMDP </li></ul><ul><li>KRDS </li></ul><ul><li>Curtis & Cartwright ... </li></ul>
    12. 15. Pay Once Models <ul><li>Gap between project based funding, need for perpetuity (eg NSF, NIH) </li></ul><ul><li>Real estimates: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Princeton: $5K/TB (~100x media cost) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>PrestoPRIME: 40x raw media cost </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>IA $2000/TB </li></ul></ul>
    13. 16. Roles for Commerce <ul><li>Scanning and Ingest (preservation factory) </li></ul><ul><li>Cataloging & indexing </li></ul><ul><li>Clearance </li></ul><ul><li>Long term access...maybe not so much </li></ul>
    14. 18. Comite des Sages: “With no exaggeration, we can state that what is at stake is a common good of humanity and not just of Europe.” “The public sector has the primary responsibility to fund digitisation, and Member States willneed to considerably step up their investments in digitisation. The current financial crisiscannot be ignored, but equally cannot be a reason for not acting.”
    15. 20. Partnerships <ul><li>Partnerships aren’t free: huge commercial uncertainties can mean harsh terms </li></ul><ul><li>Mixed record </li></ul><ul><li>Need more standard terms (C.d.S.) </li></ul>
    16. 21. “Monetization” <ul><li>“Monetization is a false promise...if it weren’t, we’d be meeting at a different hotel” - Rick Prelinger </li></ul>
    17. 23. EDUARDO I said it’s time to monetize the site.MARK What does that mean?EDUARDO It means it’s time for the website to generate revenue.MARK No I know what the word means. I’m asking how do you want to do it?EDUARDO Advertising.MARK No.EDUARDO We’ve got 4000 members.MARK ‘Cause theFacebook is cool. If we start installing pop-ups for Mountain Dew it’s not gonna--EDUARDO Well I wasn’t thinking Mountain Dew but at some point--and I’m talking as the business end of the company--the site--MARK We don’t even know what it is yet. We don’t know what it is, we don’t know what it can be, we don’t know what it will be. We know that it’s cool, that is a priceless asset I’m not giving it up.
    18. 24. Personal Archiving <ul><li>PDA 2011 @ IA, ~140 people </li></ul><ul><li>Library management, imaging, healthcare, religion, privacy, sci-fi and SNs... </li></ul><ul><li>Coverage via #PDA2011 </li></ul>
    19. 25. “ ...the role of personal archives in daily life and their research value have never been more profound. The potential benefits to society and to individuals are both deep and far reaching in their capacity to empower research and human well being and advancement.”
    20. 27. Direct Public Engagement <ul><li>New patterns of production </li></ul><ul><li>New challenge (and opp?) </li></ul><ul><li>New responsibilities for CH institutions </li></ul>
    21. 28. PrestoCentre <ul><li>Library </li></ul><ul><li>Tools </li></ul><ul><li>Training </li></ul><ul><li>Collaborative effort </li></ul>
