eRecords - first transfer of electronic diplomatic records

I don't know why this has to be a celebration, but it is good news for anyone worried about electronic archiving of records. When the government gets behind something, it suggests that there is enough confidence in the technologies and the processes that the records will hold up.

From the Ten Thousand Year Blog State, NARA complete first transfer of electronic records

State, NARA complete first transfer of electronic records: From the article, "The State Department and the National Archives and Records Administration today completed the first electronic transfer of diplomatic records. When secretary of State Colin Powell handed a stack of CD-ROMs to national archivist John Carlin at ceremony at State headquarters, it marked the transformation from a total paper process dating back to World War II to one that uses modern technology."
