10+ years ago, I saw a demo of 3D data recording.  They talked about
limiting factors being light wave-lengths, with TeraBytes per CC, and the
obligatory "Encyclopedia Britannica smaller than a sugar cube."

At that point, they had gotten it up to 27 bits (3 * 3 * 3) in a CC.
Never heard anything further.


But, I still don't think that ANY information lasts as long, nor
transmits as fast, as misinformation.
