BD, the problem is that for the most part _we_ who take the photographs
don't know what are the important images, that's for others to decide :-)

I have a very faded photograph of my grandmother and her sisters taken when
she was a small girl in perhaps 1908 or even earlier. To my grandmother is
probably wasn't terribly important, to me it is.

After saying that I took, and filed, about 300 rolls of B&W film negatives
last year, I expect them all to go to landfill when I'm gone.

Uh, hello? All of this discussion of archival media is fascinating, but
would anyone on this list of hobbyists and working pros care to tell us what
loss it would be to the world if some of our images faded a bit or just
plain disappeared...
