09 – 30 – 2005 — October Sky   2 comments

Now that it is so close, I’m getting psyched about this. The idea is that a whole bunch of people worldwide will take a picture of the sky above their heads, wherever they are, sometime on October 1, 2005. Then each participant will contribute that photo to the pool on Flickr. (If all this is confusing, then feel free to read the group page and discussions.)

Why?

It doesn’t matter, in my book. I’m just jazzed about the whole “participating in the global villiage” idea. I’m a big fan of what aligned people can achieve when they think beyond the arbitrary confines of political borders, beyond superficial differences, beyond petty issues. When we consider ourselves as citizens of the world — and we are — then something as simple, yet profound, as this project becomes possible.

What comes next?

I don’t know. To me, it’s not about what comes next as much as it is about what is possible.
