Internet service provider Virgin Media has launched a new scheme as part of its efforts to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the introduction of broadband in the UK.

Named the 10 Things Project, the initiative is calling on web users to design and develop their own time capsules featuring their favourite online moments of the past decade.

Virgin Media has suggested that treasured content may include videos of the Star Wars Kid, LOLcats or even the Dancing Baby.

People will also be able to add YouTube and Flickr images to their capsules and share their efforts with other users.

Jon James, Executive Director of Broadband for Virgin Media, said the scheme so far has been "real fun".

He added: "It's only when you look back you realise how important broadband has been over the last ten years and how we'd feel utterly lost without it."

Virgin Media is one of the UK's largest broadband providers, with around ten million customers.
