November 9, 2009: WD has today announced the ø¢â‚¬ËœTime Capsule Project’, a special initiative that aims to capture the moments of our time and safely store them on a WD hard drive for future generations to see.
The WD Time Capsule Project is a call out to everyday people, communities, towns, cities and countries to submit memories they would like to preserve, such as photos of a first car, graduation ceremony, a group photo of lifelong friends, a black and white photo of one’s grandparents, a magical moment among families, a photo of an endangered species or images of an environmentally friendly initiative. The objective is to preserve a snapshot of life in our time for next generation to experience.
Each month, a social theme will be set as an inspiration for creative minds to participate. The launch theme this month is ø¢â‚¬ËœYour Small Contributions to Saving the Environment.’ To kick off the project, WD’s Tod Yagi, Senior Manager, Worldwide Channel Marketing, Component Hard Drive Business Unit, will be the first person to upload pictures to the WD Time Capsule. The WD Time Capsule Project will be open for one year. Participants will be automatically entered into a monthly drawing with the opportunity to win special prizes. Highlights of saved images will be showcased in a photo ticker on the site throughout the year as an example to others.
To use WD’s Time Capsule, users simply:
1) Visit www.wdtimecapsule.com;
2) Create a simple account using the registration form;
3) Upload as many photos as they wish based on the monthly theme into the WD Time Capsule; and
4) Go into the monthly draw with the chance to win amazing prizes.
Every photo that individuals upload will be stored in WD’s 2 TB WD Caviar Green hard drive. After one year, the WD Time Capsule Project will be closed. But memories will live on securely and safely and will be shared with the world and our future generations. The WD Time Capsule will be stored for safe keeping in Australia.
