In the final episode of 2019, we discuss GitHub's archiving initiatives, including the GitHub Arctic Code Vault, and their work with the Long Now Foundation and the Internet Archive. What is the value of archiving in society today, and what do we hope future generations will learn from us? Also, why would GitHub start an initiative that focuses on the far, far future with no discernible shareholder value for today?

We also tackle charitable giving, 10 decades of technology, and what we'd like to see from the new year.
