I think you mean Sillicon

silicone:
Any of a class of synthetic materials that are polymers with a chemical structure based on chains of alternate silicon and oxygen atoms, with organic groups attached to the silicon atoms. Such compounds are typically resistant to chemical attack and insensitive to temperature changes and are used to make rubber, plastics, polishes, and lubricants.

I would also add that this should be done with a "write once" kind of storage back. This way we have some small assurance it was not modified.

You could go even further and keep a running log on the same medium that had an md5 of each previous content item which was then md5'd with the current.
This seems (to me at least) like it would provide a verifiable trail that shows the written contents were not tampered with.

Would this kind of scheme me useful? or am I missing something obvious?

+ - Judge Blocks U.S. Sales of Samsung Nexus Products->

Submitted by
PyroMosh
PyroMosh writes "Apple has been granted another injunction against Samsung, their second in a week. This new ruling comes down against the Samsung Nexus phones, the prior was against the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet. The patents in dispute involve "searching across multiple databases" and apparently voice search. Ridiculous patent fights have long ago become commonplace in this industry, but injunctions are fairly rare. How can a judge block sales of a product line over a patent that covers a concept that predates the product by decades?"

In actuality, the Constitution doesn't apply to "citizens," nor does it even apply to "people." It applies to the government. It tells the government what it can and can't do (the body tells the government what it can do, and the Bill of Rights tells it what it can't do).
