Knight News Challenge Proposal

On September 30, 2014, in Research, by Chris Prom

Imagine a world in which everyone’s life story can be made preservable and accessible.

The Mykive project seeks to provide people with a flexible set of tools that they can use to help people preserve, aggregate, and make accessible the digital legacies that are currently trapped in “the cloud” or in other locations that make them difficult to access, preserve, and use. By aligning the work of several innovative projects into a broader software environment and archival framework, myKive seeks to enable the development of the trusting partnerships that underlie successful archival acquisitions, and ultimately to build a storehouse of personal digital archives that are open to research, interpretation, analysis, and innovation.
