With the bwFLA Emulation-as-a-Service you can enable users to view your (interactive) objects without actually giving the environment+object to the user. This is a nice feature, especially for dig. art and similar: you can provide access to an almost unlimited amount of people being able to view, use and interact with a piece of dig. […]

With services emerging around emulation as e.g. developed in the bwFLA project (see e.g. the blog post on EaaS demo or Digital Art curation) proper measures […]

Now that the subproject lead in PW is being transferred from me to Kresimir, it seems a good time to reflect a little on what we have achieved in PW since February 2011 and what is left to do!

Emulation-as-a-Service (EaaS) can simplify the provisioning of emulation for end-users' needs without requiring them to install and configure complex toolchains on their devices. Beside single machine instances the user is directly interacting with, more complex setups for networked services as in preserved business processes or research environments are required. This involves computer networking between nodes […]

It’s been more than two years now since I wrote my D-Lib paper JPEG 2000 for Long-term Preservation: JP2 as a Preservation Format.

Digital Preservation is making certain progress in terms of tool development, progressive establishment of standards and increasing activity in user communities, but there is a wide gap of approaches to systematically assess, compare and improve how organizations go about achieving their preservation goals. Some standards exist suggesting certain functional building blocks and others prescribing criteria […]

  ”#Migration: No one does it for the future; they do it (need to do it) for the now.” – https://twitter.com/beet_keeper/status/327968228276060160   Recently I was asked by a colleague to look at some files he’d been sent by Hutt City Council in New Zealand; an unknown format from a 1995 vintage IBM operating system – […]
