Nice idea, but would this be trusted?
Why It Matters. Archivists have long understood the need for "dark archives." Some records will not be preserved at all if they cannot be kept secret until they are safe to release. But some records are too sensitive or valuable to entrust to any one archive. We need a new kind of distributed ...
