This is coming from a scholarly publication perspective, but the problems the author describes are almost identical to what we’re facing in broadcasting. In a nutshell, we are generating data at a rate faster than Moore’s Law can keep up with. Unless that rate changes, it’s just going to keep getting more expensive to store our media no matter how much the price of the hardware goes down.

So the question is – do we just just accept that as the price of doing business, or do we take a hard look at our policies and just exactly what we are trying to accomplish?
