Yahoo! Time Capsule

You may be interested in participating in this really neat project: Yahoo! Time Capsule

"Like everything Yahoo! does, it'’s about you--our amazing users. We think there'’s no one better suited to teach future generations what the world was like in 2006. For 30 days, from October 10 until November 8, Yahoo! users worldwide can contribute photos, writings, videos, audio -– even drawings -– to this electronic anthropology project. This is the first time that digital data will be gathered and preserved for historical purposes.


And by November 8, you will have helped create a digital legacy of our times, a mosaic of revealing snapshots that will be sealed and entrusted to Smithsonian Folkways Recordings based in Washington D.C., officially taking its place in history. Before we deliver the Time Capsule to Washington D.C., we'’ll project the capsule contents onto one of the world's oldest time capsules, the Pyramid of the Sun in Teotihuacan, Mexico, and beam it into space from the pyramid. Wow. This will take place October 25-27, and you can watch it live via web cast.

Finally, to thank you for your contribution to the Time Capsule, you'’ll be asked to help us select how Yahoo! will donate $100,000 to seven global charitable organizations."
