You'd still have the  problem of electronic stgorage, defragging, 
compacting, putting them on CDs  and stacking them, problems of 
compatibility on playback, that is, if you wanted to play them back and 
changed your computer system. Ever hear of  Beta max? 16mm film, Polaroid 
film--cost of transcription?  Or, albumen prints? Might be worth a 
discussion somewhere down the line.

'Green' doesn't solve this problem, merely moves it into the future or 
another place-- from my point of view-- but again, might be worth 
discussing.  Do we have a librarian or museum curator hande.  Thy deal with 
these issues all the time.
