Ippolito quoted in Slate article about online-only shows

Jon Ippolito, a new media professor at the University of Maine, was mentioned in a Slate article about online-only shows and viewers being at the mercy of streaming platforms. Experts have proposed strategies for saving all sorts of corporate-owned digital content, including TV, the article states. Ippolito, who is director of the digital curation graduate program at UMaine, believes the concept of long-term storage of digital media is unworkable. Rather than impose analog methods on digital media, he recommends developing strategies that best suit the digital world, Slate reported. The article also cited Ippolito’s book “Re-collection,” which he co-wrote with Richard Rinehart.
