Recording

Recording is a process of capturing data or translating information to a format stored on a storage medium often referred to as a record.

Historical records of events have been made for thousands of years in one form or another. Amongst the earliest are cave painting, runic alphabets and ideograms. Technology continues to provide and expand means for human beings to represent, record and express their thoughts, feelings and experiences.
