Message in a bottle

From now until November 8, Yahoo! users around the world can contribute their photos, words, video, and audio to the Yahoo! Time Capsule.

Contributions are categorized into eight different themes: love, anger, fun, sorrow faith, beauty, past, now, hope and you.

I’m fascinated with the statistics, broken out by gender, age, country, media type and theme. Perhaps I’m biased, but it’s no wonder that photos are far in the lead with words a distant second. Love, beauty and fun are leading in the themes.

On the 8th, the capsule will be sealed and entrusted to Smithsonian Folkways Recordings based in Washington D.C.
