One of my ideas always was to produce something very, very durable and
hide it somewhere (so no idiot will destroy it too soon), in the hope
that future archologists will find it. :-)
It is not easy to store petabytes on durable rock so that each bit is
large enought to withstand a million years of sun, rain, wind.
