So what do we do if you-tube goes down?

Real question: what do we do if permies.com goes down?

I think we all know to: back up our hard-discs. Back up your photos, back-up your documents. There is no permanent way of storing information.
The closest permanent preservation of information is what nature has achieved: information is for ever copied. DNA is copied, copied and copied again, perpetually as long as the species survives.


Now, my question; how do we perpetuate this fantastic resource of permies.com, and all it entails, in the face of the unknown?

I'm with Morgan but I use Zim Wiki for my personal reference. I started taking my notes with it about a year ago and am constantly adding to it.
