What is Digital Preservation? In-library and archival science, digital preservation means ensuring that digital information of continuing value remains accessible and usable.

What is Digital Privacy? There are many dimensions to our digital worlds. We buy everything online. We entertain ourselves with endless piles of digital content. We communicate and socialize with friends and colleagues. We’re all digital, all the time. But what we do, what we buy, who we visit and what we think is now on sale.

And can Blockchain solve either of these challenges?

Our next Disruptive Technologists event, brought to you by McCarter & English, is on “Digital Preservation, Privacy & Protocols (ie Blockchain)” on July 30th. We hold our free events quarterly at Microsoft in Times Square.
