Sometimes, its fun to do something a little out of your safe bubble in academia. To that end, one of my most recent papers went up today in the International Journal of Digital Curation. Called ‘Grand Theft Archive’: A Quantitative Analysis of the State of Computer Game Preservation, its co-authored with Paul Gooding, who is now the BBC Sports Librarian.
Paul did most of the research, I just helped him polish and polish and buff and polish it into good shape. A fun project for me to be involved in – and an interesting read about the issues regarding preserving our gaming heritage.
