===One Hundred Word Description of the Idea===
+
 
+
The Web's first draft of history is ephemeral. New services spring up with new formats; even those that survive may not be geared toward archival storage (either as a business strategy or from failure to consider long-term access). Can standards make it easier for Web develoment to plan for future use and archiving and for researchers to gain useful access to data stores?

We're losing millions of pages of history as Web pages disappear or fail to adapt to new server or client architectures. Couas historical artifacts? ld standards help digital materials to survive in accessible form? Can we make these standards easy to use in the course of development, not as afterthoughts that don't get added by cost-cutting startups in just-in-time mode?
