What’s In The Box ?

17Sep08

I love the BBC in many different ways – very occasionally they let me down but their negatives are enormously outweighed by the positives.  A new project that they’ve recently embarked on is The Box. Essentially they’re going to follow a BBC News branded shipping container for a year to see what happens and in turn to help tell the story of international trade and globalisation.

It’s a simple, straightforward idea but a great one.

As well as reading about various aspects of the project you can track the location of the container (via a GPS transmitter bolted on) on this map, or even build you’re own Box here, (I’ll show you mine if you show me yours).
