The NEW 7 Wonders Of The World

The New Seven Wonders of the World is a proposed alternative to the Seven Wonders of the World, organized by a Swiss corporation called New Open World Corporation (NOWC). The final list was announced on July 7, 2007 in Lisbon, Portugal, in the Estádio da Luz, SL Benfica's stadium at 9:30pm (local time). Voting closed on July 6, 2007. Next in the company's series is the " New7Wonders of Nature ", nominations possible until August 8, 2008.

The selection was made by free and paid votes, through telephone or online. The first vote was free to registered members and additional votes were purchased through a payment to NOWC. In addition to the sale of votes, NOWC relied on private donations, the sale of merchandise such as shirts and cups, and revenue from selling broadcasting rights.

I seriously believe that whole thing was a one big hoax, as even UNESCO had distanced itself from Newsevenwonders thingy.Thankgod it is all over,
