The interesting thing is, that based on several criteria: Lifespan (and
absence of natural deterioration); ease of data recovery; obviousness that
the artifact contains data and how to retrieve that data...the best choice
would seem to be the shellac disc! However, nobody makes them, or even
makes the equipment to make them!
