E-timecapsule.com Selects Datawitness To Capture And Preserve Historical Record At Stonehenge
Jun 6th 2006
Surrey, British Columbia – June 1, 2006 - E-timecapsule.com founder Ian Ray explored and rejected all purely digital methods for recording information which will be placed in the E-timecapsule. His search and legal advice led to microfilm as the one proven medium for compact, stable, long-term storage immune to technological change. Ray selected Datawitness to capture and preserve time capsule entries on the medium most likely to survive one-hundred years underground at Stonehenge and still be readable.
"Datawitness was the logical choice to build a web-based interface and application for the project. We pioneered systems enabling organizations and individuals to transfer digital information over the Internet for preservation and archiving on microfilm via our patent-pending process," said Datawitness CEO Jag Gillan.
Datawitness integrated its archiving technology into the E-timecapsule.com web site. Datawitness also built a transaction system enabling payment by credit card and immediate creation of custom digital certificates for each entry submitted to the time capsule.
