The Database is the place where the digital copy of the Speaker's Submission into The Archive will be stored permanently. The Database will be supported by offline copies, both digital and physical, of every Submission. This seemingly dichotomous approach to storing data will ensure that if one should fail the other will survive and be used to recreate the former.
The Database will be accessible to the public and used as a platform for discovery, learning, and connection to the past. The Speakers' stories will be able to help future generations navigate the challenges of life by providing profound insight only gathered after a lifetime of experiences.
