The archaeology of Identity.
Consider a world where all human communications are represented by numbers, a digital world. Imagine a future archaeologist finding a DV cassette from hundreds of years ago (a real found object, circa 2006). Imagine trying to decode this ancient digital object, codecs unknown, obsolete, hardware long lost.
