Printed books are the best way to make sure information lasts for generations
In today’s world, there exists a well-founded bias towards technology, and with good reason. Our access to various forms of media has dramatically expanded over the last century, thanks to the continuous development of tools for creation and enjoyment. Yet, this advancement also brings about certain drawbacks. If you happen to possess 8-track tapes, VHS tapes, cassette tapes, or floppy disks, along with compact discs laying around, you might not currently have a convenient way to access the content stored on them. Additionally, these mediums are susceptible to degradation, potentially resulting in the loss of information as the years pass.
Physical books are the best method for long term storage of data and information, due to their longevity and ability to withstand the test of time. Printed media can last hundreds of years, while digital media can be rendered obsolete in a matter of decades. Paper and ink in a printed book can remain legible for centuries.
The pros of physical media are many. Books are immune to technological obsolescence, so they don’t require updates or periodic maintenance. This makes them extremely reliable and cost-effective in the long term. Books also don’t require an internet connection to access, making them ideal for remote and rural locations. Additionally, physical books can be stored in many formats and sizes, which makes them easier to store and transport.
