1000 Journals Project.

I love this. The 1000 Journals Project is an ongoing collaborative experiment attempting to follow 1000 journals throughout their travels. The goal is to provide a method for interaction and shared creativity among friends and strangers.

How does it work? Unfortunately, you’ve got a better chance of winning the lottery than of getting a hold of a journal. That’s the problem when there are only 1000 of them.

The project officially launched in August of 2000 with the release of the first 100 journals in San Francisco. Artist Someguy gave them to friends and left them at bars, cafes and on park benches. Shortly thereafter, people began emailing him, asking if they could participate. So Someguy started sending journals to folks, allowing them to share with friends, or strangers. It’s been a roller coaster ever since.
