Weird Computing

For lack of a better term, I’m calling this “Weird Computing” for now. Simply put: assuming we’re still around 1,000 years from now, what will computing look like then?

I’m particularly interested in how we can build programs and store data with an eye toward the longer term. What are the best ways to cheat bit-rot and keep things working on a scale of even decades?

Here are some links to things that other people have been doing in the space that I find interesting:
