Teach Me About Art Storage.

My favorite part of museums these days are the visible storage units. My favorite part of natural history museums are old-fashioned drawers filled with air-tight cases. I want to know more about the history and practice of storing/preserving art objects, paintings, sculpture, textiles, etc. What books/websites should I be reading to find out more? The more weirdly medium specific and detailed the better. Strange anecdotes very much welcome.

Dear Sophie..

As a father of two little snippers and inspired by a recent advert for Google in which emails are sent to a gmail address detailing a childs life to look back on in future years - how good a way is this to create a multi media archive for posterity? Is it possible to archive entire gmail accounts offline for backup? Concerned that the various external HDs I use to backup will fall apart in the sands of time.

Help me store & play media on the cheap.

I bought my mac laptop just before digital media became the thing. That said, my internal hard drive just can't hold it all. There are a lot of variations on this question on the hive and other places, but I am having trouble finding an answer to a basic question. How fast does a external hard drive need to be to play music and video off of without hiccups or interruption? Want to spend <$100 if I can.
