    Hey everyone, I’m listening to an episode of the Radiolab podcast, entitled “Right to be Forgotten.” It’s about news website http://www.cleveland.com and their consideration of people’s requests that articles be removed because that content is having a negative impact on their life.

    I see this as connected to our work as librarians and (at least in my case) archivists, and our role in making content accessible. If living people have the ability to impact the historical record, what are the repercussions?

    I’d love your thoughts!

    • @cdkoontz This is super interesting to me. I’ve listened to a couple of podcasts about similar issues and what people have done to get something taken down. I will give a listen to this one. One thing that strikes me is it might depend on what the content is and where it originates from.
