This is something fun and rather unusual. Yahoo has lauched a Yahoo time capsule. This time capsule will run for 30 days (from Oct. 10 untill Nov 8 ) accumulate data and then saved for the future generations. People in the future will be able to see what was it like in year 2006 through images, writings, audio files, videos and drawings which are currently submited by users.
You can go and drop there allmost anything you feel like. There is no word about when the capsule will be revealed to the world but something like letter to your children or grandchildren can be fun. I am thinking of dropping a screenshot of makeuseof’s index page.
Categories under which stuff can be dropped include: LOVE, ANGER, FUN, SORROW,FAITH, BEAUTY, PAST, NOW, HOPE and YOU. You can also view what other users said and comment. If you want to be a bad ass and be remembered this may be a right time for some criticism.
Actually, this is the first time that digital data will be gathered and preserved for historical purposes.On November 8th, 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.,and officially taking its place in history.
It has been 4 days since release and many people already submited interesting content.
If you wish to use it sign up is required but if you have an account for any Yahoo services you can use it. Ok now I am off to drop a line there as well…
