Good And Bad Tech
Technology is truly a boon to the human race. I spent most of my free time this week cataloguing our DVD and CD collection. My 7-year-old son, Max, helped me in numbering each CD and DVD, while I checked what was on each of them and created an intensive list of the contents of the 1000+ DVDs we own.
Then, today evening, I started taking backups of all the DVDs that I feel that we'd want to save for many more years to come. This is where technology in this space is mind boggling. I could save the contents of over 200 DVDs on a single 250GB external hard disk. Just amazing.
It is pleasantly surprising and also a bit shocking that modern technology can help us save this much space nowadays. In the future, I am certain there will be plenty more inventions in such areas that will lead to even greater space savings. The only sad part of it all is the Trillions of Dollars gone down the drain since music CDs and movie VCDs are hardly used anymore due to these very upgrades in technology.
