The Steve Jobs Time Capsule

Diggers capsule

At the Aspen International Design Conference in 1983, Steve Jobs (the founder of Apple Computers) gave a speech that spoke about the future of technology. He used a “Lisa Mouse” — one of the first computer mouse sold in shops during his presentation. After the presentation, the people who were there donated various items to be put in a time capsule, and Jobs donated the Lisa mouse that helped him in his presentation. The capsule was called the “Aspen Time Tube”, and buried in an Aspen field for excavation years later. Unfortunately, the time capsule was lost — until now.

Lisa mouse

During  the filming of a T.V show in America which searches for artefacts from the past, they discovered the long lost time capsule and inside they found the mouse as well as all the other things that were donated on that day.

What would you put in a time capsule for others to find in the future?
