There’s so much information nowadays.  And so much of it is online, on USB keys, SD cards, etc.  Before, we used to save that content on media like paper.  Now, so much of it is stored digitally.  Yet with the explosion of information, when will we run out of room?  At some point, the “cloud”, all the DVDs and USBs we create, there will likely be a finite amount of content that can be stored (that finality may not be within our lifetime but natural law suggests because we live in a finite world, there is a limit).

Where does this lead us?  No idea.  One question is, who will get to decide what gets kept and what gets thrown away?  I have no idea.
