How to preserve the memory of tribal settlements? Digitize history.

The development of the written history of nomadic tribal states is often referred to as extinct. On the one hand – because of the way of life these tribes lead (tribes of Africa, for example), and on the other – because of low literacy rates in the population. And if history was once destroyed by the burning of libraries, it is now doomed to die without being even written. From this point of view, it would be a good idea to keep a record of each agency’s history: Khyber, Kurman, Bajaur, and others. And a virtual data room can help.

Create archives

It is one thing when historians cannot explain the occurrence or cause of a particular historical phenomenon, and the other when no mention is made of it. The tribal migration season poses a serious obstacle to this, because in the nomadic way of life, the least that everyone cares about is transporting with them what is not important to their existence, and historical records are just that.

Because data rooms run on cloud storage, the only thing they need to operate is a gadget and the Internet. And as it is available now, archiving written memos of the history and diaries of the nomadic population will be possible through the use of data room software. In this way, archives can be constantly updated with new records, and descendants will have access to history and the format in which they are accustomed to working most digitally. Perhaps this is the post-history period that is already being talked about today?

Create libraries

Written sights are the most commonly used source of storytelling. These include literary works, diaries of historical events, documents, etc. And if in the culture of the West they use the data room for financial and legal expertise or business mergers and acquisitions, then for vdr development tribes providers can become analogs of libraries.
Pluses in this set:

  • The literacy rate of the population will increase
  • Ability to save the nomads history
  • It can be supplemented at any time
  • It will not occupy a physical place.

Virtual history and digital libraries are not the fiction of cyber-punk novelists, it is a reality that can really change the way we capture our historical development. And who, other than nomadic tribes, should start it?
