Saving the web, one page at a time.
If you wanted to preserve important bits of our civilization for future centuries, you could do worse than a bundle of paper sealed in plastic.
We are building a series of time capsules containing photos, music, technical journals, and descriptions of everyday life in Right Now, A.D. The time capsules are buried by volunteers at specific locations all over the world. Each node contains the locations of all the others, forming a network.
We have built 3 nodes so far, and have curated the data for dozens more. Your donations go directly to printing, materials, and shipping. If you want to adopt a node, please let us know!
See the list: http://www.paperinternet.org/nodes
Each time capsule of this size (2,000-4,000 pages) costs $40-$60 for printing and $20-$30 for the epoxy. They become more cost-effective as they scale up.
