In his digital archives presentation, Jake Berger discusses the BBC's digital public space idea and how it will be implemented. He discusses the value of the archives the government-funded organization has and how they are looking to connect people with the quadrillions of files they have. This will be quite the undertaking as they will need to digitize and verify an enormous amount of information.
The idea is users can tag content as the archives will be permanently available online. It will also be free to access, so anyone can go on and find that holds value for them, whether it is a video of the miners' strike in the 1980s or their grandmother in a radio play. Berger's digital archives presentation holds significance for history buffs and for building community.
