WHat i fear about what technology will do is how secluded it is. Very few people know in detail how things work. Many of us have the concepts behind like the television. R bg beams and electromagnets and stuff. But we don't know exactly how it works enough to recreate it.
It's some kind of conspiracy waiting to happen. A few people control technology. They could easily do something with it.

Indeed, its often lamented by historians and archaeologists that they have no data direct from the lower classes. The illiterates who made up much of the worlds various societies have left very little of what they thought. Now, practically everyone is leaving vast volumes of their thoughts and lives all over the place. This means that the ability to the understand society and history of this century is going to be greatly increased for future archaeologists and historians.

the problem is redundancy. the problem of the middle/dark ages was the lack of books describing the dark arts of mathmatics and science. with nothing to refer too, the age's scientists needed to relearn everything from scratch.
to prevent this, We need a permanent global library of information. Books, digitial items and all the power sources to run them. Should a disaster occur, we need a way to quickly relearn.
