    My time capsule
    If you were invited to fill a time capsule with items which describe your life, what would go in it....?

    I posed this question to the school chapel audience in today's assembly talk, during a skim across the surface of some ideas from The Long Now Foundation which I'd linked to the theme, Exploring the Past.

    Made me wonder, what items would I fill a time capsule with?

    First thought: my fav. pic of me, aged two with a chocolate bar part-in and part-smeared around the outside of my mouth, in a big white sunhat in the garden. Probably partnered with the most recent (and equally uncomplimentary) pic of myself, from last Thursday's blog.

    Second thought: this needs more thought. Blogging's part of the digital-disposable scenario I described in school today; time capsules part of long-view thinking which takes time to gestate. So ... watch this space ... perhaps I'll replace my timeline page at some point with a digital time capsule instead....

    So go on, what would you put in your time capsule for the interest of future generations?
