We've seen it happen time and time again, to wax cylinders, to records, to tapes, and one day pretty much all physical media storage formats will give way to the cloud, or at least something like it.

Advancements in storage have led me to think physical storage will be completely dropped, in favor of online storage, in about a century. I think. I'm not that good at predicting technological changes.

When do you think online storage will take over?
