Sturgeon's Law?  But which 90%?

The trouble is that both the first decades of TV and the first decades  
of the internet have been interesting and creative times.  If we lose  
90% of that material or more, little will be left for our descendants  
who will not have a choice like we have, of saving it or not.  It will  
just be gone.  Perhaps it doesn't matter.
