'I2C max distance.'

Hi all,
Anyone know of a distance limitation to I2C?? I need to move 64MBytes of data
about 100 feet and would like to do it serially (at max rate and min cost).
This is a low-mid volume (10-100/yr) application. I2C sounds like it could
work (better than RS232). Any info or suggestions? Thanks.

I2C can go up to 1000 feet with the Philips driver chips.  I2C is pretty
slow.  Consider using RS485?  It can go up to a couple thousand feet at
respectably high baud rates.
