Hey Bulgin - thanks. ;)

Did you have to log into the NYT? I tried to post a link that would not need log in, but maybe it didn't work.
This link might not need log in.


It isn't much of a recording, most of it barley audible, but at least it exists. And it was never meant to be replayed, just seen. 1860!

The article raises some interesting questions.

How was the paper scanned?
What's this "Digital Stylus" technique? Anyone know how that works?
