|That's what they would really like to know from you: Where were you when the first man landed on the moon? How did you experience the end of the Second World War? Did you storm into the streets during the student revolts of the sixties, or did you forge swords into ploughshares during the peace protests of the eighties?|
The totally routine interests them as well: Did you move around a lot, and where have you lived? Where did you go for your first vacation? What did you learn in school, and how did you discover your vocation?
Here's how you can get involved: Send memories of this century as well as your wishes and hopes for the coming one. Dig through your letters and photo albums. School reports, poems, diaries, Super 8 or video film - everything that reflects a piece of your life intrigues us. You can also record your stories on audio
cassette. From the memories they receive they are building a multi-media Internet memorial, which shows this century from your point of view. Please, join in!
It's been said that prison can change a person, and it seems to have changed Stanley "Tookie" Williams, one of the original founders of the Crips. On death row since being convicted of four murders in 1981, Williams has written a book called "Life in Prison", designed to scare people off the assumption that prison is anything but a living hell.
He's also written a series of smaller books telling kids how to avoid trouble from gangs in their neighborhoods. While we can understand your hesitance to turn to a convicted killer for advice, the books have been praised by many reputable sources (including the American Library Association), and the proceeds from the sales go to nonprofit organizations.|

|The Digital Journalist|
Renowned photojournalist Dirck Halstead was originally granted some server space by Hewlett Packard to exhibit his photos and test some of the company's visual imaging products. After hits to the site grew phenomenally, Halstead decided to turn his project into a webzine
showcasing photos and photo-related articles from talents around the world.
|His site bursts every month with fresh content --stories and photos-- and there is a huge archive with former issues too. It is a must see for anyone interested in photojournalism or who likes to look at pretty pictures.|
