    I would suggest that you also consider traditional written transcripts. Of course, at this time it is easier to use modern technology. However, in terms of the Long Now, these technologies are more fragile, and actually less important to Buddhist practice than it might seem. Figuring out how to transcribe a backup paper system, I think, would be very good practice for students of Dogen’s Way. It would be labor intensive. You must remember: the future coming our way is not going to be what many people imagine. The Internet might not be here. All things in this world have a beginning, middle, and end.
