I'm quite worried that black and white photography (silver-based at least) 
will become such an art form that the materials won't be easily available at 
all.  Since any output of digital photography isn't truly archival, this 
would be sad news indeed.

I plan to keep up black and white, and frankly still intend to build my own 
darkroom (I have good access to one in the meantime).  I mix most of my own 
chemistry from scratch, and buy lots of Ilford and Agfa paper and lots of 
Ilford, Kodak and Efke film.  Let's just hope that there are enough of us 
around to keep those companies in business.
