A number of men and women sit around a table in a meeting room and introduce themselves before they speak. "Hi, my name is..." each begins. Then something like, "... and I’m a tech addict." Sound familiar? Ever had this feeling? Is our community, especially for those dealing with digitization and digital preservation, exempt from this problem? We are increasingly confronted with technical specifications that we must adhere to in order to comply with preservation standards, but who among us is really qualified to understand what it is all about? This paper, although conceived by a tech-oriented mind, aims to observe the topic from a different perspective, bringing some real-life examples, to try to give back the right value to technology vs. the human factor, eventually delivering value over tech obsession.
