Lightning talk speakers address a variety of issues and scenarios that include outsourcing to a computer history museum, a commercial service, or another archives; transferring from outmoded tapes and email systems; providing services within a consortium; engaging retro-computing aficionados and other communities; and good-enough in-house solutions.
