What they say about us

  • When information is current, it circulates, it passes around and it does not get lost. There is no need of special measures to preserve it. When it loses validity it disappears, unless it finds shelter in libraries or archives. PADICAT is the digital information shelter through which we will not lose our memory.

  • When the study of computer code has academic value, digital archeology will be a science and universities will offer classes on digital evolution and conservation. Meanwhile, PADICAT is the closest thing we have to travel back in time to enjoy the digital heritage of Catalonia.
