== Projectors ==
You can use a slide projector, and camera on a tripod and just photograph the projection screen. It is difficult to get high quality this way, but its easy and quick.
== Flatbed Scanners ==
Many flatbed scanners come with attachents for scanning slides and negatives, the main downside to using a flatbed scanner to digitize slides is speed. Flatbed sanners are slow.
A typical flatbed scanner with a slide attachment: [http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/scanners/film_negative_scanners/canoscan_5600f Canon canoscan 5600F]

<page pageid="5" ns="0" title="Statement of Project">
<rev xml:space="preserve">It has rapidly become less and less of an issue to present digital data to the world. Between webservers, wireless connections, and the glut of storage space available, the problem has shifted from the technical issue of presenting digital data, than acquiring or converting it from non-digital sources.
The world is waking up to the fact that there is a lot of human information sitting in formats that, while stable, are also harder to transfer to others. Books and writings stand ready to be converted into information. Similarly, information which might be considered "digital" but is in fact trapped in containers that have fallen out of fashion need assistance getting to the modern era: Floppy Disks, Cassettes, Videotape, Film...
But a problem arises - it takes time and money to convert these items, and the institutions that exist to help convert them inevitably end up with massive queues and lines to do the work. If the project is split, however, among hundreds or thousands of people, then we have a fighting chance. But these multitudes of a digitizing army need guidance and training.
'''Therefore, this Wiki has been created to "Digitize the Planet"'''.
The overall goal is to be a one-stop shop for information on best practices to convert as much of the non-digital world into digital, preferably without the destruction of the original containers. By links, essays and explanations, this wiki will hopefully grow to allow anyone with items trapped in a non-digital format to give them a shot at immortality.
