Have you ever wondered what will happen to all the data you will create over your lifetime?

Consider your email, social media data, websites, photos, videos, school documents, and all the other files and traces you create and interact with on an ongoing basis.  Do you know how you will preserve it, understand it, and use it in the future?

Join friends and fellow coders to create innovative solutions to the ongoing challenges facing individuals (including digital humanists and cultural heritage researchers) in the digital age, including how we can best analyze, visualize, and use the immense variety of personal data that we are all creating.

How can we best make sense of the digital strands and data that comprise a 21st century life?

Join your friends! Eat our food! Win our prizes! Keep the present safe for the future! See Requirements, Prizes, Judges, and more at our Devpost page.
