The Beeb Follows a Box -- To Long Beach

Apparently shipping containers aren't endangered. Via Boing Boing we learn that the BBC is following a shipping container from "birth" around the world. Why? Apparently it's an "experiment to lift the veil on the global economy and tell the stories behind the goods inside, those who make them, and how they travel to consumers." The Box is due to arrive in Long Beach where it will unload its contents. Will it become a home? A school? A hotel? The possibilities are more tantalizing than finding out what's in the box. The BBC will also investigate the auto-industry at the port, highlighting all those imported cars that have been piling up due to dwindling demand.
