thetimecapsule.org was launched on 1st Jan 2012. The basic idea emerged from the fact that I was coming across a lot of things: a lot of events, individuals and corporations who change our lives everyday and help form the year!
So I decided to create a ‘time-capsule’. But then I thought, creating a time-capsule will mean that I only add the things I’ve come across, thus missing out on what other people found important, etc. So, that’s where my holiday project emerged from: to create a website which will allow people to add ‘profiles’ on things and people that help shape and form a year, every year. But how to limit it? Well the time-capsule is limited to a 1000 top-rated entries. So each user can add up to three entries (free user registration), and all the other users can vote on the entries. The 1000 highest rated entries will stay in the time-capsule. This does not mean that the other entries will be deleted. This just means that although they will exist online on the website and you will be able to direct-link to them, the time capsule for that year will only contain the top 1000 rated entries of that year.
Also I’m currently planning a version 2 of the site. So if you have any ideas or features that you think I should incorporate, also do let me know =)
This also completes number 11 of my things to do before I die list.
