Mashable.com, meanwhile, picks up the back story:
On August 26, 1912, a man in central Norway wrapped a mysterious package and wrote a note on the brown paper parcel that read: “May be opened in 2012.” The man, Johan Nygaard, was the first mayor of the small town of Otta and left no hints as to the package contents.
One hundred years later, the Gudbrandsdal museum prepares to open package in an event that will be streamed live online.
