Grondahl: Russian hackers no match for digital archivist (Times Union)

Times Union: Grondahl: Russian hackers no match for digital archivist. “When a ransomware cryptovirus that originated in Russia struck the Fulton History newspaper website Sept. 7 in Oswego County, it caused one of the world’s most extensive newspaper digitization projects, more than 44 million pages worth, to crash. In an instant, Tom Tryniski’s astonishing accomplishment — homegrown and hand-built across 20 years of relentless toil and an investment of tens of thousands of dollars – seemed to have been obliterated by rogue hackers.” I have so much admiration for this man.
