What type of material/system/protocol would you use to ensure zero data loss over 10,000 years?

I love it..we have media that will store information for 100 years, long after the device to read it is obsolete and hard to find.

Exactly what I was thinking! If we continuously convert all of our data to be readable by the newest technology, we'll be mostly OK. In reality though, a lot is still lost because we just won't have time to do all of the converting. I wonder how many vinyl platters made it to 8-track or cassette?

The other thing is that, to date, all of our recording media have specific "shelf lives". Even if we could "hack" ancient media via modern technology, it could be still be corrupted when we get to it.

Thanks for the GA.

"It doesn’t matter whether you are using R or Python or Weka – the best approach to learn data science is to learn the basics of the tool you are using (e.g. How is data stored? How can you access specific data points? How to make data manipulations? etc.) and then just start working on a data science problem / project."

NASA is swamped with data from its many satellites. You might consider doing some Astronomy data analysis.

Libraries have been organizing and filing data for centuries. Why do computer data organizers think they can do better?

Is this Harold Hill trying to cozy up to Marian, Madam Librarian?

Speaking as a librarian (even though I don't work in a library any more): THANK you for recognizing that we librarians did it first. Or at least we were early adopters.

You're very welcome.

IMHO If today's data had to conform to a rigorous cataloging system like the Library of Congress or even the Dewey Decimal system to be placed on the internet then there would not be a need for a search engine.

Well I don't think that the internet diminishes the need for libraries....I believe it is accretive in nature....Siri does little to replace an attentive personable librarian....

I once visited the Library of Congress and checked out a book from the stacks, but not out of the building. That was in 1970, and I don't know if ordinary citizens can still do that.
