Swiss Picture Bank
I saw this in the May 2008 edition of Outdoor Photographer Magazine and thought that it was pretty interesting. Basically, the Swiss Picture Bank is a service that allows you to upload images through a web-portal for just cents per image –three cents per compressed images and 15 cents for uncompressed. The Bank will then "make multiple copies of every picture, encrypt them and secure them on redundant servers housed in data centers located throughout Switzerland." If you need to retrieve a lost image you can download it at any time. This is a certainly an innovative way to archive your images and you can tell you friends that you have a "Swiss Bank Account." The only downside to this concept is that I didn't think of it first.
