Here we are at the end of August 2013, I’ve not heard anything about opening the time capsule.
1988 (MCMLXXXVIII) was a leap year that started on a Friday, in accordance with the Gregorian calendar. It is the 1988th year of the Common Era, or A.D.; the 988th year of the 2nd millennium; the 88th year of the 20th century; and the 9th year of the 1980s decade. In the 20th century, the year 1988 has the most Roman numeral digits .
1988 was an important year in the early history of the Internet – it was the year of the first well-known computer virus, the 1988 Internet worm. The first officially sanctioned online commercial e-mail provider debuted as well. (Wikipedia)
What might be in the time capsule?
- Floppy disks?
- Copy of Bobby McFerrin’s Grammy-winning “Don’t Worry Be Happy” album?
- Tickets from the INXS concert at Kiel Auditorium in March? Or to Tommy Shaw at the Arena, also in March?
- KSDK’s interview with Michael Jackson’s unknown backup singer, Sheryl Crow? On tape, of course.
- Newspaper with story on Richard Gephardt’s bid to be the Democratic nominee for president?
- April issue of GQ with Ozzie Smith on the cover?
No matter what they put in the time capsule I’m sure it’ll make many of us feel old. Now to get someone to set up an opening event.
