Am I incorrect in suggesting that the advantage of CDs/DVDs is that unlike
vinyl or tape, they do not, or at a much reduced rate, wear out on use?
Hence they will last longer and the audio/video will remain crisper for
longer than earlier a/v recording technologies.
For text recording, on the other hand, stone seems to pretty good (better
than paper, parchment or papyrus for longevity certainly).
