A bit of news that I came across recently:

GIANT CD-ROMs SLATED FOR 2000
Norsam Technologies Inc. in Albuquerque, N.M., is developing a CD-ROM
technology that would enable users to store up to 165 gigabytes on a single
disk -- almost 10 times as much data as can be stored on digital video
disks.  The additional capacity is made possible by replacing the prevailing
800- and 350 nanometer laser writing technology with a more powerful
50-nanometer particle beam.  "The Norsam HD-ROM will ... be a major
competitor in the high-availability data arena," says the company's
president.  The HD-ROM disks will be the same size as current CD-ROMs, but
will require users to install high-density readers in their devices.
