New Seven Wonders of the World - Vote Now

Posted by Scott / February 10, 2007

Montreal-Olympic-Stadium.jpgThe Globe and Mail is reporting today on the work of Bernard Weber, a Swiss-Canadian gent who is trying to establish a new set of Seven Wonders of the World. To be considered a World Wonder the structures have to be man-made (not woman-made, nor monkeyrobot-made, of course), and build before the year 2000.

Weber has created a website that allows people to vote for their picks. Considering that the original list was established in 200 BC by Athenian engineer and tour-guide Philon of Byzantium (man, whatever happened to that guy), I guess there’s some grounds for a new list.

However, given the structures on the original list (the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, people!) I was a little surprised to see structures like the Eiffel Tower and Sydney Opera House among the new candidates. What’s next, the Big O?

Anyway, have your say! You only have 147 days and 7 hours left to vote!
