Our 1st Birthday

April 12, 2009 by admin

Camera 72 from Tom K in Hawaii

We’ve passed a milestone today, in that the project is one year old.

Happy birthday!

To celebrate, I thought we’d cover some of the statistics from the project.

75 Cameras
30 Cities
22 Countries
5 major regions of the world
Over 30,000 miles travelled
15 cameras found
Over 100 people involved (from those who wrote in to setup a camera, those who dropped a camera, those who found a camera and those who returned a camera)
Almost 160 images in our flickr group

and of course, 3 cameras returned!

But wait! As if the camera gods are sending us a celebratory birthday present (somewhat like last year’s xmas present!), we received this email from Nina R. in Frankfurt this evening:

we found one and finished it. What to do next?

I imagine this is Camera 73, but we shall wait for a more detailed response and let you know.

Not bad for our first twelve months. Thanks to everyone who has been involved, and as Jon C (of Camera 65, 66, 67, 68, 69 and 70) tweeted:

@foundacam Happy birthday. May there be many more years of Disposable Memory ;-)
