    So, project silica is a environmentally sustainable way to store data. The method of storage is to write to glass using voxels, some thing that is normally associated with video games. This method of storage has a 10K year life span. It reminds me of scene in the 1960's move The Time Machine and the talking rings.

    And the talking rings from The Time Machine.

    Staining the environment should be discouraged!

    Imagine your data, your online dirty laundry stored forever.
    Perpetual shame, stained on voxels...
