13 Challenges to Web Preservation

David Rosenthal has put together a list at DSHR’s Blog of 13 problem areas, or challenges to Harvesting and Preserving the Future Web. This excellent list is based on a half-day workshop given by himself and Kris Carpenter Negulescu of the Internet Archive. Here are the first five challenges:

  1. Database driven features
  2. Complex/variable URI formats
  3. Dynamically generated URIs
  4. Rich, streamed media
  5. Incremental display mechanisms
