It is funny how often we were wrong in the past, yet we continue to feel confidently right in the present. It all falls apart once new variables are found. Someone was encouraging me to use Dropbox and Google Drive because it is "Free" storage. If you are worried, just encrypt what you store there, they say. But I wonder if that encryption will be solid ten years from now. If not, then the data is already out there and it is too late to re-evaluate.
