"The cliché is that once something goes online, it’s up there forever.

But the truth is that the Internet has a memory problem and some of what 
we’re losing – or could potentially lose – has significance and value.

While archivists struggle with the challenge of preserving our digital 
record, the rise of pay walls present a particular problem."
