While creating web sites we often see their lifespan only for up to 3 to 5 years. With every relaunch
and overhaul we are confronted with content migration and short term motives to delete maybe
valuable content. On the other hand what is the value of our content? Can we assess it
meaningfully? Do we really know in which context it is used?

we are not keeping an eye on preserving it in a manner that will enable us to find and use it in more
that a few years in the future.
This talk will introduce you the aspects of digital preservation with a special look on how TYPO3 is
preparing to help it users to create a digital heritage.
This Talk is part of the "Concise Preservation by combining Managed Forgetting and
Contextualized Remembering" Project ForgetIT. The ForgetIT project is funded by the EC within the
