A message in a bottle in the digital era

By Saburo Sakata, a stationery designer. The USB holds up to 2 GB. I love the idea of this washing up on shore, and all of the paradoxes involved – is someone trapped on a desert island with an outlet? Maybe a dying laptop? Is the bottle waterproof? (Wouldn’t it have to be waterproof for a paper message, too?) Did the message really require 2 GB? Maybe it contains an entire account of someone’s life on a deserted island, like a real-life Robinson Crusoe.
