PDF download of 'Learning from Shogun' a collection of academic writing about the history and culture covered in the book. it was created to help all the teachers who got hit with a flood of book and miniseries fans in the 80s.

archiving digital content is tough and expensive. more support for my belief that we're living in an era that future historians will consider a dark age due to no recorded culture surviving.

I'm worried about my own digital content (all the many many MANY works of fiction I've churned out in the last 14 years or so) and I already know there were loads of them I lost when Windows 3.1 got replaced and I could no longer use that program. At this point I'm trying to collate them and make books via Shutterfly or Lulu so at least I have a print copy. Will my kids ever read them? Who knows? But I'll still have them and they won't disappear when the website goes away.

(Still need to archive my LJ but man that's gonna be a major bear)

I also think the overabundance of STUFF and THINGS (physical and digital) will also be terribly confusing for historians. Even if only a fraction survives, that's still a lot of information out in the world. What will they make of it? What will be relevant?

(As for my paper journals... since I write in short-hand, I doubt even family members would want to try to read them when I'm gone. But that's fine--they're for me, anyway.)

Huh. One of the podcasts I listen to (Samurai Archives) mention that they got their start in Japan from the Shogun miniseries. I hadn't realized it was that big until then.
