Decay of Digital Things was a series of essays and a course at the Stanford d.school. The goal was the ask what happens to digital things when they get old — hardware, software, and networks. It was a fun and temporal project that had a big impact on my later thinking. It’s also something that others have asked me to re-upload, so I’m including what I could find here.

A longer writeup about Decay was published in the 2018 book, The Internet of Other People’s Things
