Bulldog commenter Bob LeDrew offers up this comment on the 2017 Time Capsule:
I see our councillors offered up items for a 2067 Time Capsule that is being sealed for opening in 50 years to celebrate Canada’s 200th.
Lots of items in there, but my favourites are from Councillors Shad Qadri and Michael Qaqish: USB sticks. Oy gevalte.
Cast your mind back 50 years, to 1967. Know what state-of-the-art electronic storage was then? Eight-inch floppies with 80kb of memory. Now go find a disk drive that will read one of those. I’ll wait. That’s about how likely it will be that someone can read a USB key in 2067.
I’m sure they’re nice guys. But not tech geniuses.
