10:05 Creator of the community art project PostSecret, Frank Warren
In 2004, Frank Warren passed out 3000 blank, self-addressed postcards to strangers on the street in Washington DC, asking them to write on it a secret they'd never told anyone and send it to him. He got 100 postcards back. But even after the experiment finished, the project went viral - he started receiving secrets written on postcards sent to his home address from all over the US, and later the world. Now he gets as many as 800 secrets a week (more than half a million in total). Frank selects 20 secret postcards each week to post on Sunday evenings on the PostSecret website, which has had more than 500-million hits since it began. The secrets are funny, shocking, tragic, intimate... and have in particular thrown light on the issues of suicide and mental illness.
