Preservation of E-Resources

The recent announcement from New Breed Librarian about closing up shop brought to my mind again the preservation problems of electronic resources. There are some articles and interviews at New Breed worth preserving. Will they be available a year from now?

The proposal made by Walt Crawford "Long-Term Access to Library Zines: A Call to Action?" makes sense. Has there been any movement on that idea? Maybe New Breed can perform one final service to our community by getting some action started on this issue.
