The irony of the digital age – unlimited information storage for unlimited time but eventually, no way to access it.
I don't know about irony here. However, the human population explosion has also resulted in an explosion of things to read. Fortunately, the public behaves at a pre-literate level and doesn't demand as many books as you would think a mostly literate society would demand.
Anyway, I have trouble with book storage. The e-Reader is a technology for it's time, undoubtably, and IMO not a gimick at all.
Sometime, in the far future, people will be trying to get a box to work that contains all the books ever written. Then, our written history will just go blank!
