Every day, we throw tons of content online, in photos and emails and fleeting thoughts, but we don’t always back it up somewhere else. Part of this is because we trust the cloud as something constant — something too big to fail. After all, it’s not breakable like our laptops and smartphones. You can’t drop Google in the pool by mistake. It’s probably safe to assume that Twitter won’t disappear tomorrow. But it’s still worth noting which social networking sites have a backup service. Starting with Facebook in 2010 and followed by Google and Twitter in 2011 and 2012, big social networks began including native archive tools that let you download a .zip file of everything you’ve ever posted with the click of a button.

Salvation Mountain is known around the world as a burst of color in the desert outside Niland, California, on the Mexican border. A one-man monument built over three decades piece by piece; it is a gradual accruement of hope, love and joy in physical form.
Less is known about the man who built it, Leonard Knight, mostly because that’s the way he liked it. An unassuming man, he preferred to let his mountain speak for itself. It did just that, in bright, bold colors and optimistic messages.
After visiting the mountain multiple times, filmmakers Ben Stoddard and Dave Ehrenreich spent an intimate extended stay with Leonard at Salvation Mountain. Rather than add to the already vast lexicon on the mountain as an object, they chose to focus their attention on the man who built it. Through interviews with Leonard and his inner circle of friends that cared for him in his fading years, they hoped to learn about and showcase the enigmatic artist himself.
