Storage of the Future

I've been hooked on the www.bbcworld.com for about 30 minutes now. I have to turn away now because I could easily spend days here.I was reading a newpaper article that came up from one of my google alerts. The article talked about NanoTech.org early in the article (which of course struck my interest).

This url caused a sort of ADD chain reaction and I started surfing that site for a while reading up on all kinds of cool stuff. I got to this one page about how scientists are packing spheres of molecules into nanotubes (think of a test tube, only it is just a few atoms wide) and they can read the motion of the atoms and how they work in unison to extract data from it. Yeah, I know right... Anyway, from there I looked at the pictures (which are pretty cool by the way) and clicked a link at the top that linked to the BBCWorld site. From there, I started reading all kinds of cool stuff and watched a couple of videos about tech stuff. I found this one article that had a ~5 minute video on different types of storage techniques that hardware devices might be using in the future. Quite interesting stuff.

(ADD is wearing off) I think I'm going to go back and read that initial newspaper article now...
