Preserving the Past for the Future
Without knowing from whence we come, there is little hope for charting a pleasant, human-centered future. Thus, saving our cultural resources, "Alas, all too rapidly vanishing into limbo of time", is a vital endeavor that ranks alongside science fiction writing and reading as a primary future generator activity.
