The nature of data, its worthlessness

I just want to make a quick and bizarre note on the nature of data.

I've got this spindle of cd's--all kinds.  Lots of drivers for hardware I no longer have or use, games I no longer play, various cd's I've burned over the years.

The spindle was getting full, so I decided to go through the cd's and get rid of a bunch of them:


and in fact, if you really really want, you can watch as I dispose of them:

Enjoy that?  I hope so.

Anyway.  Data has no intrinsic value, even when it's on shiny plastic discs.
