Topic: Time to resurrect the "Capsule Keepers"

Greg: Only five years to go until the Washington Centennial Time Capsule is to be opened and filled with the next batch of future artifacts. We're starting the process of reviving the Capsule Keepers organization and trying to get in touch with the living Keepers, who should be about 30 years old around now. I wrote a piece about it in Crosscut (see link). Don't know if you can help get the word out that we're looking for Keepers and others who'd like to help with our future experiment. Hope all is well with you. Best, Knute Berger

Absolutely! Check out this living time capsule legacy. Knute strawbossed this operation, a fascinating experiment in social engineering, and I was honored to contribute.

It needs to be filled with the next round of "future artifacts"?!?!?!?...oooh!oooouh! One of the Keepers HAS to put a repo Sonic Screw Driver in it! Specifically the "Future Doctor's" Sonic Screw Driver. Those items have become quite popular in the last three years...
