Thanks to a new book on the project, I’ve been reminded of the 1000 journals project. The idea is simple: an artist going by the moniker “Someguy” sent one thousand blank journal books into the world. They would travel from place to place, from person to person, collecting stories. It’s being called a collaborative art project.

For younger folks, the Flat Stanley Project has a similar feel.

I think both are really cool offline ways to engage kids in a worldwide discussion.
