Guests: Barry Lunt, PhD, BYU Information Technology Professor; Mike Alder, Director of BYU’s Technology Transfer Office CDs, DVDs, flash drives…they’re unwieldy, but really, what better solution do we have for keeping stuff that’s important to us? Computers crash. The Cloud is so new, you have to wonder if storing stuff on Google or Apple’s servers is really a permanent solution. One day it could be gone in a puff. BYU information technology professor Barry Lunt has come up with a solution that is so durable he calls it “permanent storage.” It’ll survive a fire, a flood and even the passage of 1000 years.
