I believe the idea is that paper notes will be taken during the day and typed/edited/collated by night reducing the amount of work to be done back in Aus (and increasing the editing quality because the events are still fresh).  Flash failure wouldn't be /totally/ catastrophic.  But yea, no-one likes loosing work and it isn't completely unlikely in this case!  A slew of SD cards keeping backups is a likely solution.
