Visited Nigel and Jules on Pakatoa Island again recently @rek @neauoire

They are looking to finish their yacht next year, and are building on a bit of land in the north. Going to leave the island.

This is too expensive but seems like quite a nice memex style tool mymind.com/

The marketing copy is janky but the tool is really snappy and easy to find stuff without any manual tagging/organising.

@cancel @neauoire I feel like you're the ghost of a wizard who haunts Devine with helpful programming tips and stern practical advice.

This thing is called a 5D optical data storage crystal. It's a little piece of fused quartz, etched to remarkable precision using a femtosecond ultraviolet laser.

The "5D" part of the name is just a marketing gimmick (it only has three dimensions, obviously), but it's impressive anyway. Using current technology, these little things can store 360 terabytes of data. Once written, these crystals can survive temperatures up to 1000°C, and could theoretically last for billions of years.
