Write plain text files

Derek Sivers makes some excellent points throughout this piece, but two stuck out to me:

You will outlive these companies. Your writing should outlive you. Depending on companies is not an option.

Reliable, flexible, portable, independent, and long-lasting. Plain text files will be readable by future generations, hundreds of years from now.

These qualities should be evaluation criteria for more than just writing.
