The content of MOM is split into three Sections (see: >> What gets selected for MOM)
The first category (automatically collected contents) is under-construction and some newspapers have already agreed to take part within this automatic collection process; namely to store the daily editorials of the major newspapers from all countries worldwide.
The second category – contents which are selected by institutions, is already accumulating content: Awards such as the Grete Mostny Preis of the University of Vienna and the German lyrics award “Spiegelungen” are just the beginning. Collaborations with the nuclear industry, museums, PhD theses, books, magazines, art projects, are already part of MOM.
The third category – individual contents – consist of the free text-contributions by individuals and the tablets which are acquired by individuals in order to finance MOM.
The private occasions which are documented in MOM are birthdays, company anniversaries and weddings. At the very beginning of MOM, some institutions such as UNESCO didn’t feel comfortable with the privatecontributions. One of the concerns was that MOM would get filled with thousands of weddings.
Scientists from archaeology and linguistics cleared up these doubts:
If a large amount of weddings are contributed to MOM, this content will demonstrate just how important this event is to our everyday lives. Linguists claim that there is nothing better for deciphering and understanding than one particular event being explained from many alternative perspectives and in different languages.
