Upgrading to macOS Sierra… success?

I have an older, late 2012 model, Mac Mini that has gone through quite a few operating system (OS) upgrades over the years and has gotten progressively slower each time. In an attempt to regain some of this lost speed I decided that I would erase the drive and do a clean re-install of the OS. My plan of attack was as follows: Do one final upgrade OS upgrade in order to move from the installed OS X El Capitan to the newly released macOS Sierra.

An Experiment in Transitioning to Open Document Formats

Recently I read an interesting article by Vint Cerf, mostly known as the man behind the TCP/IP protocol that underpins modern Internet communication, where he brought up a very scary problem with everything going digital. I’ll quote from the article (Cerf sees a problem: Today’s digital data could be gone tomorrow – posted June 4, 2013) to explain: One of the computer scientists who turned on the Internet in 1983, Vinton Cerf, is concerned that much of the data created since then, and for years still to come, will be lost to time.
