How to store your deepest thoughts, craziest rantings and fondest love letters in a digital time capsuleBreaking News
A new project called Earth Capsule gives anyone with a dollar and access to an Internet connection the ability to contribute a message (at earthcapsule.com) that will be preserved for 50 years. Instant immortality -- at least for your ideas.
Started by Ashley Rindsberg, Evan Strome and Jason Ressler, Earth Capsule is a digital take on a favorite pastime: burying time capsules. Admit it, at some point you've taken a few personal items, put them in a box and buried them for someone else to dig up at a later date.
You wouldn't be the only amateur historian out there. The International Time Capsule Society estimates that there are about 10,000 time capsules scattered around the globe, most of them lost.
