Seven Wonders

The new seven wonders, that is. And only a few hundred days left to vote on what they will be!

This is your opportunity to participate in the very first global and democratic internet vote to determine the New 7 Wonders of the World. The existing seven wonders of the world were determined over 2000 years ago. We have adopted the ancient concept and offer you the possibility of a current global ballot, the results of which will be held in highest esteem throughout future generations as symbols of the wealth of human accomplishment.

No list would be complete but this one seems peculiar to me. I like Gaudi's Sagrada Familia as a choice and the Golden Gate bridge is suitably Colossos of Rhodesy.

This is my list of the new Seven Wonders: the electrical grid, continental highway and rail transportation systems, cargo container ships, the communication satellite network, antibiotics, refrigeration and, of course, "the internet".
