I and some other folks working in digital preservation are trying to get a Stack Exchange site focused on digital preservation launched. Here is the blurb defining the proposed site: 

"Proposed Q&A site for librarians, archivists, curators, data managers, information specialists, computer scientists and engineers and other professionals working to ensure long term access to digital objects."

It you would like to help get it launched just click the link and hit the commit button. At this point the biggest hurdle is getting people who have already have at least 200 rep on other stack exchange sites to commit. So, if you have participated in any of the stack exchange sites it would be particularly awesome if you could commit. Also, if you know other folks that you think would be interested please consider sending the link along to them too.
