Voicemail Playing Some title here

Your Timestream is empty.

But you can still fix that.

As you're listening to voicemails, you can make a playlist of them.

Click the plus sign on a voicemail to add it to your Timestream.

Add them in the order you want them to play.

When your playlist is complete, go to "Your Timestream." Give your Timestream a title, and tell us what it is about.

Put in your email and press "Publish." We’ll send you an email. Click the link in it to show you're not spam. Now after a quick moderator check your Timestream will go live!

Remember: The Timestream Maker is very forgetful. If you go away before you finish your Timestream, it will forget what you had started. (Also, you can only make one at a time)

Why make Timestreams?

As we listen to voicemails we notice that some of them just kinda go together. Like mixtapes, you put them in an order that tells a story your way. A story of the future(s). So we hope you will make Timestreams to share the stories you hear in the voicemails.

Dear Coasters: Keep your spirits up

There’s certainly been a lot of doom and gloom in the news lately about the environment, but I remain hopeful because I see a future population, united and motivated to change things for the better.  I especially see this in my daughter, Betsy, and her experiences with FutureCoast.  She made a video and I wrote about it on my blog. It will be Betsy and her cohort who save the planet, I’m convinced.

“Follow the leaders” by Isaac Cordal

Photographs of this sculpture by Isaac Cordal have been circulating for weeks now, with the caption “Politicians Discussing Global Warming.” It’s a great image, and it resonates because people are feeling an urgency about our situation that doesn’t seem to be addressed with the same alarm by our elected officials. However, I think there is a better installation, also by Cordal, that speaks more succinctly to the problem.  It’s called “Waiting for Climate Change” and it shows a series of average people, waiting and looking out to the ocean.  This is the real issue.  We as a people cannot wait for the government to “do something” and sit back and wait.  It’s all our jobs, all the time, to be aware of what is coming and to each do our part to make things a bit better by the choices we make about how we live our lives. Betsy and Pierre know that, and we know it too, deep inside.  The future is in our hands. We need to act accordingly. Or the people who end up in that water will not just be politicians, it will be all of us.
