Voices From The Past
#1
Okay this is totally off topic from computers but is a reach out from technology of yesterday.

It is a Youtube video about humans beginning to record audio.  It even has samples from the 1850's to 1890's.  It goes back in time getting earlier as the video goes on.  Some of the recordings were originally performed on paper but with modern techniques we can now hear voices of yesteryear.

I think it is pretty incredible.  If you are interested the video link is below.

It's not entirely off topic as those recordings are the very beginnings of the recording technology we use today in hard drives and cd/dvds.
BTW the first one I have heard before it is made with lamp black (soot) as the medium.
