In the days before email messages, family members would send letters through the postal service. These letters, if cared for correctly, could last decades or even hundreds of years. Email helped precipitate the decline of letter writing because sending an email is easy, fast and free. But email are ephemeral, and are at risk to lost.
Vint Cerf, the co-inventor of TCP/IP protocol, opined to The Guardian, “We don’t want our digital lives to fade away. If we want to preserve them, we need to make sure that the digital objects we create today can still be rendered far into the future.” But every day, millions of personal and business emails vanish forever, or wind up in a bin of electronic information that is so complex and deep that it becomes worthless for understanding our pass or extracting useful information.
