Look at some of the old work by Emmanuel Goldberg on the
"Rapid Selector", particularly the parts that were lifted
by Vannevar Bush for his "Memex".

For lower data densities, consider punched tape.

append your data to the "Stolen Altair" message! It will
bounce and echo forever, coming back once every six months?

Be sure to retain hardware, software, and knowledge of how to
retrieve the data! You don't want to create another
hard-sectored system that nobody knows how to read
(such as Stonehenge)!
