Storage for Dummies

I read in the NY Times yesterday that a Silicon Valley millionaire is stocking a gigantic warehouse with one hard copy of every book written in the 20th century – about 10 million books – in case there is a digital disaster.  A wonderful idea.

Everything from Hemingway to Computers for Dummies.  One book that would have come in handy, though, if it exists, is Storage for Dummies.

Why? Because if you planned to preserve a century worth of books, where do you think that warehouse should not be located?

How about in San Francisco, where many scientists say another major earthquake is imminent and could destroy the city a second time?

Guess where he’s doing it?  San Francisco.

Storage for Dummies, as I said.
