Digital Old People

A lady came into the computer shot the other day who's husband had just passed away. She was wanting to back up the data on his computer to a CD. It was interesting to me that, as old as she was, she had files, records, even journals in a digital format.

As interesting as that is, it's even harder to imagine how much digital crap I'll have when I'm her age. My digital life began to accumulate from the time I was in high school with homework assignments and pictures. I still have saved games from Ultima VII. Ten years later my electronic storage has increased exponentially. Who knows what will become of it all tomorrow...
