Life accomplishments. Bucket list. I always wanted to give a “thumbs up” (even though that’s culturally inappropriate in a few places, I found out later on – oops) – to everybody on the Planet Earth.
Well, we’re currently at 7 billion people+ so that might take a while.
So during a free day/night I had 1.5 yrs ago, I gave shoutouts to every country and capital city on Earth and every state and capital in the USA.
Geography was always my weak point anyway, so it was a good excuse.
I set each to their own EDM [the ones for the US States towards the end are more specific/ironic/etc]. I was proud of it, did it on Vine, compiled and uploaded to Youtube.
But something wasn’t right. Vine + Youtube are both commercial enterprises and, as we know, the nature of commercial enterprises is that they get bought out, sold, fall apart, and stuff would just be ‘gone’.
Enter Internet Archive.
Non-profit effort to archive *everything* since 1996.
Now, assuming they keep their end of the bargain, my own little wish is fulfilled: a little encouragement and good will towards all on the planet, permanently archived (hopefully). I’m happy
