Great article on why you can’t keep it all

This is a great article on why people, corporations, governments, and anyone shouldn’t and can’t keep everything forever.  I read a few of Dr. Rosenthal’s papers in my digital preservation class.  I think this article really illustrates a problem that few in IT are considering.

Edit: I just found a journal article titled The Economics of Long-Term Digital Storage.  It looks like this article was mentioned in the Future blog post.
