As we know, before MP3s and the iPod and iTunes changed the way most of us consume music and transformed the music industry, there were CDs. (In my house, there still are--but maybe they're just taking up space.) This article from The Atlantic discusses how the Library of Congress is researching just how data decay occurs on CDs. This is a good reminder of how data, whether it's music, movies, or your business's financial data, needs to be kept on current media--and refreshed occasionally. You might want to check out our booklet on setting up a backup routine for your business (applies to your home media collection, too).
