One of life’s little synchronous moments

As I slave away on a paper on digital preservation, I heard a snatch of Eine kleine Nachtmusik from the TV downstairs.  I checked my music library but surprisingly I don’t own a copy.  So I googled it, looking for a copy to listen to, and without much thought queued this up.  So, I just realized, my thinking on digitization and digital preservation is accompanied by a free, openly available, digital transfer of a 1936 Victor 78rpm recording of a centuries old song.

Brewster Kahle deserves greater recognition.
