Family data sharing

I'm very interested in family data sharing and backup. For instance, how do you share your family photos between houses? I'm sure there are some photos among your family of which specific people want copies, and that can easily be seen as a kind of backup, too. The problem is how you do so when Uncle Frank doesn't have a computer and Aunt Betty lives three hours away and only has a very limited internet connection? It's all well and good to point people at an internet file sync service like Dropbox or Live Mesh, but sometimes it's not an option. So what do you do?

PS - If Uncle Frank has no computer, it's probably going to be more difficult.
PPS - But what about a digital photo frame and a big flash drive as a present?
