whilst I agree with the sentiments of preserving electronic information, the
idea of using a "universal" language has been tried before. As no-one has a
crystal ball that can know which way technology will go, the universal
language approach fails.

Good old pieces of paper last through the centuries, and computers can print
out their information on paper.

It is still the best approach to future proof in my opinion

We use computers to store the stories and images of our family's
histories. We hope our records will be available to our future
generations, so they may be appreciated by them.
