NotForgotten Announces Free Video Archives to Record the Real History of the COVID-19 Pandemic
PRINCETON, N.J, March 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — NotForgotten Digital Library LLC, creators of the first digital time capsule powered by blockchain, today announced they are offering 200 free archives to ensure the historical record is accurately captured during this unprecedented world event of containing the novel coronavirus. Fifty percent of all sales of this product will go to supporting healthcare workers.
NotForgotten enables users to capture stories, significant life events and journal them through an easy-to-use app interface. NotForgotten is inviting the general public to contribute to a future, accurate record of history. People can share their personal experience of the COVID-19 pandemic that will be immortalized for generations to come.
NotForgotten is asking everyone to create a COVID-19 video which tells future generations about what they are going through: about how this pandemic is affecting their life, their family and their livelihood, and to share reflections on what has impacted them the most – has it been the solidarity, a new reflection around family values, or a realignment of what is important? By having people tell their story, future historians will have a real-life account of what was experienced both collectively and individually.
“At NotForgotten we believe there is a better way to preserve history. We save and archive real human stories for centuries,” says Adrienne Liebenberg, Co-Founder at NotForgotten. “We would like people to contribute now to a future, accurate record of history. This unexpected moment in time is impacting us all worldwide. We invite everyone to share their experience of the COVID-19 pandemic and in this way bring us all together during this difficult time.”
Two Hundred Free Video Offer
For a limited time NotForgotten is offering 200 free COVID-19 template videos, after which they will be offering COVID-19 video stories for $15 in an effort to collect a collective time capsule that can be viewed in the future. 50% of revenue will go towards supporting healthcare workers
The stories are securely stored in a “digital time capsule” in two physical locations for up to 300 years, using a combination of blockchain technology, personal genealogy records and WorldCat, a global library of library collections. Powered by Veritone’s aiWARE artificial intelligence cognition, these time capsules will also be analyzed to create metadata on events, times, and places and made easily accessible and searchable via the white-label Digital Media Hub.
