The essential characteristic of digital technology is its archivality: that is, digital technology consists essentially in the storage of information. The ever-increasing capacities of servers and hard-drives allows in parallel an ever-increasing ability to store documents, texts, lectures, videos, and nearly anything which can be represented digitally.
