In January 2007, the UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive present New Media & Social Memory, a public symposium to discuss strategies for preserving digital art at a time when digital technologies are evolving and becoming obsolete at an astonishingly rapid pace. While focussing on digital art, the symposium also addressed larger concerns about the long-term conservation of our increasingly digital culture, including how we decide what digital content - from Web sites to video games - are worth saving.

Featured talks included:
- Richard Rinehart, Digital Media Director and Curator (UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive)
- Jane Metcalf, Wired Magazine
- Stewart Brand, Long Now Foundation
- Jon Ippolito
- Marisa Olsen,

On the site, you can also find project documents and papers from the symposium, including: - A System of Formal Notation for Scoring Works of Digital and Variable Media Art
- Appendices to A System of Formal Notation for Scoring Works of Digital and Variable Media Art
