Submission + - Data for the Future

An anonymous reader writes: I am working on a personal project of mine and I have been doing most of this work on my computer and online. Even though I have physical copies of the more important things (that is how I received them, so I digitized them myself) Sometimes I worry. Not about data failure, I have backups in 4 places (Web-server, PC, File Server, USB), this is about making sure that this data is usable to future generations. With the fast pace of software and technology advancements I fear that come a few years I may have to be switching platforms just so this data can remain accessible and easily available. What are the options to make sure that all this important information that we have now can remain available to future generations?
