In case you haven't heard, and chances are that you have, there are only 7 days left to vote for the NEW 7 wonders of the world.

From the Christian Science Monitor:

"The competition, which is organized by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and Bernard Weber, a Swiss-Canadian filmmaker and author, allows people from across the world to choose from 21 monuments, narrowed down from an original list of 177 in 2005.

The goal of the vote is to redefine the original seven wonders, which were established more than 2,000 years ago by Greek scholars. In the intervening millennia, more than just the field of candidates has changed. The race to be in the top seven has taken on a decidedly democratic twist with a worldwide constituency."

You can vote on the n7w website, or by phone.
