Dreamcast Junkyard to be preserved for future generations

Good Great news SEGA Nerds! Fellow fansite, the Dreamcast Junkyard, is to be preserved by the British Library for cultural history.

The announcement came when the British Library revealed a list of just 100 sites ‘Capturing the digital universe’ to be archived for future generations. The list included heavy-hitters, such as eBay, Twitter and Facebook – so for a relatively small fansite for a console that is no longer being made is absolutely fantastic!

Admittedly the list was produced several days ago now, though we only just heard about it. But we would still like to tae the opportunity to say a  big congratulations to the Dreamcast Junkyard for this awesome achievement. Nice one guys!

About the Author

I'm the European Editor of SEGA Nerds and co-founder of the original SEGA Nerds website with Chris back in 2004 or 2005 (genuinely can't remember which year it was now!). I've been a SEGA fan pretty much all my gaming life - though I am also SEGA Nerds' resident Microsoft fanboy (well, every site needs one) and since SEGA went third party, I guess it's now ok to admit that I like Nintendo and Sony too :0) I'm also the Content Manager of the big data company, Digital Contact Ltd, in the UK: http://digitalcontact.co.uk/company/team/

    Looking at that blog, I think this just means cultural standards have been lowered.
