The information isn't really lost to the universe, it's just inaccessible (by any currently-known means) from the portion of the universe that's outside of the black hole. You could think of it (loosely) like having stuff inside a room that can be entered, but never left, in your house. The stuff's still in there, but you can't go in and get it and then come back to what you were doing and you're not sure what state it's in (it could be going mouldy, or being eaten by rats and silverfish). You could go in and check and sit around and play with your stuff (if it's still in a fit state to be played with), but you can't come back out and tell anyone what's going down in there. Main point is that it's still in your house, you still have it, but it's only accessible if you're in the room with it.
Hmm, that's a whole lot like my protein 'puter's WOM* (write-only memory) Cheesy.
