Dragan Espenschied is Rhizome's Digital Conservator.

Since 2011, he has been restoring and culturally analyzing 1TB of Geocities data. From 2012-13, he lead on a renowned research project to conceptually and technically integrate the Transmediale Festival's collection of CD-ROM art into the Emulation as a Service framework, "bwFLA". In 2013, with the University of Freiburg, Espenschied helped preserve a personal computer from the legacy of media philosopher Vilem Flusser. His publications include the influential reader "Digital Folklore", and the papers "Large-Scale Curation and Presentation of CD-ROM Art", "Emulation in the Context of Digital Art and Cultural Heritage", and "An Architecture for Community-based Curation and Presentation of Complex Digital Objects".

In his artistic career, Espenschied focuses on the historization of Digital Culture from the perspective of computer users rather than hackers, developers or "inventors" and together with net art pioneer Olia Lialina has created a significant body of work concerned with how to represent and write a culture-centric history of the networked age.

I sat through the whole thing and it was just 22:48 long.
Never felt so fooled.
I suggest to watch the original again.
