The Secrets behind PostSecret

If you don't subscribe to PostSecret, an ongoing community art project where people mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of a homemade postcard, you might want to. I have been since its inception as an early art show exhibit.

Frank Warren (here's recent profile of Frank & PostSecret via Orato) posts each Sunday, and in amongst all your own fog and troubles, a review of the postcards can put much of our own mess in to a very different perspective.

What it is not is a Web 2.0 thing! It is however a riveting insight into often troubled minds of youth and adults of today, brought to us by the reach and anonymity of the web.

PostSecret has saved lives. Donate with cash in the UK or US or support by buying the books, and try and make sad stories like this (BBC video) not to appear so often.
