I LIKE TO THINK PEOPLE WILL STILL BE WATCHING THE 1978 ‘SUPERMAN’ CENTURIES FROM NOW: Microsoft archived ‘Superman’ on its Project Silica glass storage medium. “Movie studios archive thousands of movies in their warehouses. But celluloid, the medium onto which master copies are printed, isn’t the most stable storage format; it’s prone to decay and is highly flammable. Yet, switching to hard drives wouldn’t be helpful, since they’re so prone to failure. Microsoft’s new glass-based storage medium could do the trick. As reported by Variety, Warner Bros. has saved the 1978 version of Superman onto one of Microsoft’s Project Silica glass plates, which will supposedly last for centuries.”
