Spring cleaning at The Duke typically comes with a fair amount of questions, ranging from, “Can modern tech even read a floppy disk?” to “When was the last time somebody threw something away?”
But every so often, the hoarding spirit of journalists comes in handy, and we dig something pretty cool out from the depths of the back room. This spring yielded bins upon bins of photographs and papers detailing the life and times of yesteryear’s Duquesne students.
History lives on for as long as folks remember it. Discovering relics demonstrative of times long past and often long forgotten brings to light an uneasy question: In the midst of the digital age, what will generations to come find buried in bins in the back of our closets? One may wonder what we’ll have to show for all the trials and tribulation of the 21st century, when SDHC cards and iPhones are just as outdated as floppy disks and compact cassettes.
Keep making memories, DU. Here’s to what tomorrow brings. Just don’t commit any murders, please.
