Awhile ago I interviewed Jeremy Brett and Lauren Schiller who were working on a fandom/filk archive. Of course I recommend you go back, read it if you haven’t, then donate a lot of stuff to them. Go on. I’ll wait.
OK, so welcome back. Anyway, I figured that the benefits of this geek archiving are obvious. But just to list them for the sake of completion:
- We do a lot of stuff as fans, geeks, otaku.
- This is part of our history, our cultural history, and indeed culture history period.
- We should really preserve it.
- Are you really going to do anything with that pile of ‘zines?
This, in turn, gave me an idea of for a Make It So . . .
