In 2015, Scott Carlson and Norie Guthrie started Indie Preserves. Based on survey data culled from DIY and Indie music label owners, they created a blog that offered physical and digital preservation tips with the goal of helping those that they surveyed. After presenting at SXSW, the duo realized that their intended audience may not have shared their preservation enthusiasm. This presentation explores this journey: what the duo learned in their study, how they tried to help, how they interpreted their failure, and how they moved forward with new approaches.
