FringeHog Tags the World is a collaborative social media project that is creating an interactive map of photographs and images that illustrate emerging ideas about the future. We’re interested in where future ideas emerge, how they migrate throughout society and ultimately how they catalyze with people and institutions to create change. Our goal is to design a visual vocabulary of ideas that will inspire a global conversation about the most important trends and memes shaping the future.
How you can help: Set your sights on the people, places and activities that hint at what the future might look like in 10, 20 or even 50 years -- we're looking for images of objects, activities, media, and people that give you that "aha" feeling, like the future is whispering in your ear. Than snap a photo and email it, along with a title, brief description and the location the picture was taken to firstname.lastname@example.org. Photos will be accepted now through June 15, 2007. Photographs will be geo-tagged, credited and displayed on the FringeHog Tags the World map; select photos and contributors will be featured in a book describing the project.
