Alexis Madrigal writes Norway Decided to Digitize All the Norwegian Books. "By law, 'all published content, in all media, [must] be deposited with the National Library of Norway,' so when the library is finished scanning, the entire record of a people's language and literature will be machine-readable and sitting in whatever we call the cloud in 15 years. "
He goes on to say, "Which means that we are not ready for the apocalypse. But the Norwegians, that's a people preparing for the deep future." I think Alexis doesn't understand the word "apocalypse", maybe he should read A Canticle for Leibowitz.
