    What about intrinsic knowledge? Non data driven. That which borders on spiritual or “gut”. That can blow your hair back my ninja.

    Tim, is a technologist, not an archivist. Data in the digital world has a VERY short lifetime.
    Moreover, it’s usability is only as good as the policies and procedures that govern the use of the systems which generate and apply it….

    The internet is less than optimum with respect to data persistence…..
