DDQ 3(1) is available at http://home.pacbell.net/hgladney/ddq_3_1.htm

This DIGITAL DOCUMENT QUARTERLY number begins a discussion of preserving
office records—a topic that requires different emphases than preserving
cultural and scientific documents.  It also examines one manifestation of
the puzzlement some authors indicate about digital preservation—puzzlement
that partly comes from inattention to obvious social and economic facts.  It
continues with several topics that I find amusing, and resumes the
technology price watch that was omitted in DDQ 2(4).

The DDQ 3(1) table of contents lists:
	Preserving Office Records
	Pessimism and Irony about Digital Preservation
	Research Recommendation: Preservation Media as Durable as Paper
	Progress in Digital Preservation Services: Open Archives, File Formations,
	Epistemology and Software: Gödel’s Proof that God Exists, SW Aphorisms
	News: Challengers to MS Office, A Ridiculous Patent Application by
	Innovations: Eclipse IDE, Web Pages with See-Through Portions
	Reading Recommendations: Ambrose Bierce, Peter Drucker, Lou Gerstner
	Practical Matters: Spam, Identity Theft, Home Computing Price Watch

Best wishes, Henry
