Yahoo has launched what it is calling the world’s largest time capsule in history. Yahoo! is encouraging people to contribute personal photos, stories, thoughts, ideas, poems, prayers, home movies, music and art to an online anthropology project designed to celebrate and understand life and global culture in 2006. Anyone will be able to view and explore all submissions between October 10, when the time capsule opens, and November 8, when the time capsule closes. In addition to browsing the time capsule content, people can sort and compare the contributions by country, region, race, age, gender, etc. Once it is sealed the time capsule will return to Yahoo! corporate headquarters in Sunnyvale, Calif. to be sealed and opened on the company’s 25th anniversary in the year 2020. In addition, copies of the Yahoo! Time Capsule will be donated to the Smithsonian Institution’s Folkways Recordings archives as well as to The National Institute of Anthropology and History in Mexico to be preserved, studied and shared with future generations.
