The Lifespan of Data.

4.4.2010

Data has a lifespan, which is highly dependent on where said data is stored.

For example, I've had two Palm PDAs for in the past decade. I was able to import my data from the old PDA to the new one, and with each I'm able to enter data directly onto my computer and sync with the PDA. I've keeping contact info, shopping lists, and wacky business ideas for for that whole time. In comparison, the old paper address books I used to keep only held people I'd talked to in the past few years.

You can find just about any weird commercial that's recently aired on TV on YouTube, but the older stuff is harder to find. Tom Peterson's prime was well before the internet era, so you'll have to dig up some old VHS tapes to see more than a few of his commercials.
