Nick is a digital cultural heritage curator. A lot people think our books, our photos, our songs, our stuff is important. Nick thinks how we take care of our heritage is even more important. The main purpose of museums and libraries is organizing the millions of items in their collections. Now every average computer user has thousands of files, files that will be the record of our past. How do we preserve it? How do we organize it? How do we entrust it to others?
