Martin Kunze - Memory of Mankind


On Tuesday 6th December we will be joined by Martin Kunze, visiting from Austria. Further details (location, timing, etc) to follow.


Martin is the founder of the Memory of Mankind archive (MoM), which aims to pass on a permanently legible snapshot of our era beyond the digital age. He has developed new technologies for extreme-long-term archiving: ceramic data carriers, which are the most durable and resistant ones humanity has ever used.

The content for MoM is a composite of material preselected by institutions, texts collected by automatisms and contributions by individuals.

A significant part of MoM´s content is the "bottom up told history": Until now, history has been written by rulers, historians and professors - in retrospect. In the era of open source and open access it is only consequent that we write the open edited history book ourselves during our lifetime. Everyone around the globe is invited to contribute to humanity´s story.
