I am very happy to let everyone know that the camera's owner has been found!
This evening, a mere eight days after setting up this blog, I received the email that I--and lots of other folks here--was hoping for! I will be sending the family's photos and movie clips back to them this week. I will leave this blog site up until the end of February, just for folks that might be checking back in to see the great news!
Thanks, everyone, for all of your help in making this little project a great big success! As I mentioned in my comments earlier today, the outpouring of great ideas and encouragement, both here and received via email, was absolutely amazing. Thanks for helping to spread the word via other blogs, Craigslist, Reddit, Digg, Twitter and beyond. Working together, we used the internet to reunite someone with their lost family photos and, in the end, that's all that mattered. As somebody posted on Twitter, it was "one nerd's attempt at establishing humanity on the Internet". Well, this one nerd truly could not have done it without all of you! Thanks! :-)
