The Null Device
The Long Now Foundation is considering the question of
encoding data for future civilisations
. Naturally, magnetic media, CD-ROMs
and the like are out, as even if they last (which is not likely), it is
unlikely that the equipment required to read them will.
One alternative is the
"Rosetta disk", a small etched metal disc which is expected to last up to
10,000 years. (BBC News)
