Simple Data Security—The Old Fashioned Way
I found some great advice on the DPS blog about data safety procedures. Sure, it's a good article about using duplicate media cards when you have the opportunity, and importing and archiving and backing up your data, and all of those tips are always wonderfully useful. But the one that really caught my eye isn't mentioned in the text, it's elegantly illustrated in the photograph accompanying the story: there's a bold "REWARD!!!" sticker on the removable SD card. Brilliant! I think I'll have to start doing this. Not only including my name and number, but maybe offering a reward worth more than the value of the card for the return of the card. Because after all, it's the pictures you're concerned about, not the card, right? I love this idea. The simpler the better—and that much more effective, I'm sure.
