Historically, the human race has been looking for ways to preserve information on different types of media using various technologies. Only a few examples of these attempts survive today. Some of the first media was stone, ceramic, tree bark, and animal skin. Later, textual information was stored on papyrus or crude paper. Until Johannes von Gutenberg, the method of writing information on these media was the same – written by hand, one letter at a time. Gutenberg invented the printing press, but the media for this technology was limited to paper. One of the weakest aspects of paper is its susceptibility to destruction by aggressive elements such as water and fire. With time, printing technology has changed. Nevertheless, the media has stayed the same. Historical examples show how devastating this choice of materials can be. The only materials that have proved to withstand time and the elements are stone and ceramics. Thanks to these media, the names of those who created them and the names of the those who they wrote about gained immortality, and are preserved and admired by us today. These pieces talk about real people and real events allowing us to know about their way of living. Today, information is stored in a binary format on laser disks, hard drives, flash memory microchips, and other types of digital containers. However, the “Digital Genome Time Capsule” project, by the European Union, already marks digital information as endangered. Today, trusted to servers of social networks, memories of important events and personal relations will be conserved until the storage life of backups expires, while buried under immeasurable amounts of less important data.
Aeviternus.com offers to preserve your textual information as testemony to culture, art, history, and many other dimensions of your life on the only media that has proven to be able to withstand thousands of years – ceramic.
The advantages of our technology are the ability to create multiple copies of the same text giving it a better chance for survival, the unified quality of prints gives it better recognition, and a variety of modern and traditional coating that can protect the media and the information on it.
