A version of Moore's Law seems to apply to storage, which is very much a good thing. The first IBM Winchester I used cost a couple year's salary and stored 30MB on 14" platters. The next I used was an 8" ~150MB and only cost a couple months salary. Forward 30 years and I can buy a 500GB drive the size of a stick of gum for a couple hours salary. 30 more years? Can't wait to see. I assume I will eat the stick of gum and by doing so know everything in the Library of Congress.
