Hi my name's Carla Morris I'm from Sonoma County I'm an intern at The Rosetta Project my goal in the project is to include sign language data hopefully video data the old fashioned microfiche... film where it's a picture of the original - this is very similar where instead of a film picture it's carved this is version one of the Rosetta Disk it has about 1,500 languages encoded on it and you can see those are the language names this is the first version this one has actual texts as you can see here at about... how many times magnification Sarina? that's at about 200 right now I believe she covers all the numbers its at 200 times magnification right here and this is actually encoded in an analog way on the nickel disk so there's no magnetic encoding at all the idea being that the only technology that you need to retrieve this information is by your magnification we don't have a commodity solution for microetching on a nickel disk but hopefully the price goes down you know people start deciding they want to do this we start coming up with ways of recording they have redundant copies in the cloud and I don't care about where it is but like I've got a copy on my laptop, my desktop, my work computer it's all the same data I share it with someone else and they've got a copy copies are where you win you don't need electricity, you don't need computers I find this disk... stick it under a microscope
