The Great Internet Migratory Box of Electronics Junk is sort roving flea market meets Internet meme.
The idea, hatched by the guys over at Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories, is to send a box containing random electronics junk to somebody who would take a few pieces, write about them, add some item, and then send it on its merry way to somebody else.
Recipient Conditions for The Great Internet Migratory Box Of Electronics Junk:
1. Take out and add as much electronics junk as you like (but keep it small enough to fit in a USPS flat-rate Priority Mail box or the equivalent for your postal system).
2. Write up, photograph, document or otherwise publish in some way online at least one thing you took out (suggested flickr tag: TGIMBOEJ, see also: flickr group ).
3. There is a little book in the box. Add a checkmark by your name to show that the box has been to you. Also propose a future recipient by adding their name and e-mail address to the book.
4. Within two weeks pass the box along to one of the people whose name is in the book. Before mailing it to them, send them this list and make sure that they want to participate.
