    Do you think, in say 200 years, our ancestors will be able to access their families digital records? So, for example, they could read through all the emails you've sent in Gmail. In the same way the graves get dug up currently that are a few hundred years old. I imagine people would be interested to know what there great, great grandfathers life was like as a child.

    In 200 years, e-mail and the internet will be joked about in history class. "Life must have been so tough back then to communicate in such primitive ways."
