The only way to win at digital records.

Is to control record creation.

If we’re not controlling record creation, we can’t control quality.

In practical terms, not having control of creation means records:

  1. Are likely to be in places we don’t know about or can’t control.
  2. Might not have sufficient metadata for us to judge their evidentiality.

To me, these are core problems that we’re all dealing with in records, I think it’s because we don’t have enough control over creation.
