THE PERSON I'M GIVING A TIME CAPSULE TO ISN'T GOOD WITH TECHNOLOGY, CAN
THEY GET HELP?
First, making a time capsule is EASY. Some people just upload a few photos and videos,
and put in their basic information which links them to their capsule. Others hire a
professional and create beautiful masterpieces accompanied by art and literature and
twelve generations of family history. The app really is simple to use, and there is always
the option of upgrading and hiring a pro "time traveler" to do a story virtually for you or
your loved one if they feel challenged. If all else fails - hire a "personal assistant" from
NotForgotten who will do everything possible to build your time capsule.
HOW WILL SOMEONE WATCH MY VIDEO IN HUNDREDS OF YEARS TIME
The Digital Preservation Trust is tasked with caring for the tapes and archives. They will
update the technology so it can be "read" by whatever technology is relevant at the time even if its a grain of salt!
I'M PUTTING A SECRET IN MY CAPSULE. IS MY SECRET REALLY SECRET, WILL MY
CAPSULE BE PRIVATE
Everything becomes public after 50 years. It will remain 'buried" and inaccessible until
the opening date YOU choose
WHAT IS DATA ROT AND HOW IS DATA ROT PREVENTED?
Memories die when photos turn brown, lines streak across videos, photos "corrupt",
videos warp and CDs fail. This is data rot - digital data decays too. Save your photos and
videos from corrupting rotting or corroding over time. World-class archiving methods
preserve your story and protect your precious memories from data rot. Leave your
descendants a treasure trove to cherish safe in climate-controlled vaults, cared for by a
Digital Preservation Trust. Technology will be updated and audits performed to ensure
your memories are safe.
