The Luck of Seven

February 22nd, 2007 by Larry Smith

169558921_4c6ec74236.jpgFeeling lucky? Friend o’ SMITH Noel Hidalgo is. He’s launched a new project that’s an experiment in personal travel exploration called The Luck of Seven. Noel’s seven-month journey takes him around the world to explore seven continents, dive into the seven oceans, and visit the seven ancient wonders of the world. “My journey will be your journey,” he says. And he’s hoping to fund it, open-source-style, by raising $7,777—or, $11.11 from 700 people. “By donating you can help direct my footsteps … and help the world learn about open-source communities, social entrepreneurs and global change.” Through the thick and thin, sixes and sevens, Noel will diary his conversations, photograph his experiences, and record contributors’ interactions with him. He leaves from New York City on July 7. 2007. We’re not exactly sure how his journey will be ours, but we’re game to give him $11.11 to find out and say: Good luck.
