I have never looked forward to the 22nd of February so much.
In fact I have never looked forward to the 22nd of February ever.
But this year's different.
"The Impossible Project will present the status of its work on 22nd of February 2010 in New York - where Edwin Land presented the very first Analog Instant Picture publicly at the Annual Meeting of the Optical Society of America 63 years and 1 day ago, on 21st of February 1947. On this date he changed the world of Photography by announcing one of the most outstanding and successful photographic inventions in human history." (source: The Impossible Project)
We don't know the name. We don't know what it will look like (other than being black and white, courtesy of some help from Ilford) but I bet it will be bloody good.
Some things that were lost, do not have to be forgotten.
