Interview with Jeff Rothenberg
"In some ways, I’ve found the art world the most interesting and challenging because I feel that it stresses the preservation aspect of digital artifacts more than most of the other areas, unless you’re talking about the preservation of software or games, which is an area that isn’t always taken very seriously but is actually very similar to the preservation of artwork."
