This article goes through the process of archiving traditional web sites and shows how it falls short when confronted with the latest fashions in the single-page applications that are bloating the modern web.

The State of Digital Preservation in 2018 | Ithaka S+R
Our cultural, historic, and scientific heritage is increasingly being produced and shared in digital forms. The ubiquity, pervasiveness, variability, and fluidity of such content raise a range of questions about the role of research libraries and archives in digital preservation in the face of rapid organizational and technological changes and evolving organizational priorities. Ithaka S+R is interested in exploring the current landscape of digital preservation programs and services in order to identify research and policy questions that will contribute to the advancement of strategies in support of future scholarship. To this end, during June and July 2018, I talked with 21 experts and thought leaders to hear their perspectives on the state of digital preservation.[1] The purpose of this report is to share a number of common themes that permeated through the conversations and provide an opportunity for broader community reaction and engagement, which will over time contribute to the development of an Ithaka S+R research agenda in these areas.

DSHR's Blog: Ithaka's Perspective on Digital Preservation
The first thing to notice is that the list of interviewees includes only managers. It lacks anyone actively developing tools and services for digital preservation, it lacks anyone whose hands are actually on the tasks of digital preservation. Rieger writes:

This was not based on a balanced sampling of individuals involved in different stages of digital preservation, holding distinctive roles (e.g., senior library leaders, director of preservation services, preservation specialist/technician, IT specialist, archivist, etc.).

This is the bureaucracy's view of the landscape. Not that their perspective isn't valuable, but it is just one view that can be somewhat out of touch with "ground truth"

The IRENE audio preservation service at NEDCC is the culmination of a decade of research and development at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the Library of Congress. IRENE uses a non-contact approach, which eliminates the possibility of damage caused by mechanical contact of a stylus on fragile media. The process creates ultra-high resolution images of the audio groove structures in either 2D or 3D, as required. The resulting image files are then processed through software that translates them into an audio file. If properly cared for, the image files serve as a digital surrogate of the physical object, “virtually” preserving the object’s condition at the time of scanning while the object continues to physically degrade over time.
