And, since ReviewLink exists in the cloud, those updates won’t require downloading and installing a patch.

This is already possible, because whatever we create and share via the cloud, is indeed preserved for future use by ourselves and others. It is merely another version, albeit more accessible and malleable, of the diaries, books, films, music, photographs, paintings and sculptures previous generations have left behind for us to experience.
