I just found The Tao of Backup, an amusing but useful perspective on backups.

The story is slightly dated with its reference to using tape for backup and use of Veracity, a now obsolete product for detecting file changes.  (There are other methods that address the risk of undetected, creeping changes to files better than Veracity.)

It’s a good read and addresses many of the risks that backups address.
