Question

Does the internet prevent us from having any cultural ephemera (by recycling or exteninding the lifespan of something), or does it make everything into cultural ephemera?

Stuff still is regularly deleted, and is therefore ephemeral. For example threads more than a few weeks old on large BBs.

Its powers of preservation are very great nonetheless, of course. Until the electricity stops flowing.

So my answers are "No, although it tries" and "Everything that doesn't have a hard copy"

Well, what Logan has said my be true, but it certainly isn't a scantily clad, amazonian female.

I apologize for Modern Revelation's paucity of scantily clad amazonian women.
