Eternity is forever. Kings are for life. Presidents get 4 years. Andy Worhol said everyone will get their 15 minutes in the future. Your average pop song lasts 3 mintues and 10 seconds. Ring tones last for 15 seconds. There will evolve some kind of one second sound/video blast that compacts the zeitgeist into a pill.

Magpies collect shiny things for thier nests.

This is an online contest/top40/halloffame platform for things that catch people's attention in general. This would not be a juried exhibition, but a democratic crowdsourced engine. The output would be the most attractive one second blasts of information possible.

It would have to start off as a really simple and accessible mashup tool that allowed not just your average user but anyone to search, and mash up the zeitgeist.

The winners could be played against eachother in a colleseum/courtroom/dowjones space, maybe in real time/ real space like in a night club / ring, with people wearing and using Mag.Pies to attract eachother in a measured environment.

       You should write Sci-Fi. This seems so intriguing but leaves a big question mark in my mind.

       Well, there's clearly plenty of empty space there ...

       A long, long time ago
I can still remember how that contest used to make me smile
And I knew if I had my chance
That I could make those people dance
And maybe they'd be happy for a while...

       I worry this would not produce especially novel or surprising results. It would look like a TV advertisement.
