If only....

There was some other method of storing data. Some kind of write once read many format in an easily read container. Though I will admit matters of scale can be an issue, and the file system has to be regularly updated. Data dispolsal can get interesting too (I personally burn mine).

It's times like this that as much as I like moving forward with the march of progress, I wonder if we lose too much in the process (no one's ever managed to encrypt hard copy once it's been created. The only other thing I can think of is if the language dies but that's slightly different and can't be held to ransom over that one)
