Hi Angharad and everyone,
I posted on this topic in the HASTAC community blog and received insightful comments from Jon Ippolito - who needs no introduction if you are studying this field:) - and Virginia Kuhn who is the Associate Director of the Institute for Multimedia Literacy at USC.
Feel free to contribute to the discussion - the posts are always 'alive' Email me offlist (you and anyone interested in posting) with any questions on how to post.

> I am currently studying for an MSc in Information Management and Preservation. For my dissertation I am exploring the preservation of digital art. I would be really grateful for any opinions people may have on this topic – should it be preserved? What should be the criteria for deciding to preserve certain work and not others? What is being done at the moment to preserve this work? And what they think about these current practices? I am particularly interested in who people think should be responsible for ensuring this work survives and how they think it should be done. Thank you for reading this and I hope to hear from you.
