The power of the Internet is being credited with reuniting a college football fan from Ohio with his lost digital camera.

It began on September first when Kevin John lost his camera outside Ohio Stadium after getting someone to take pictures of him and his son posing with the Ohio State mascot.

A woman found the device outside the stadium, uploaded a photo from the camera, and e-mailed it out to more than a dozen friends. She asked them to circulate the photo among other Buckeye fans. Within 48 hours, Michelle Montgomery was able to declare success.

John had learned who had his camera and contacted Montgomery. He says the experience shows "the power of the Internet, e-mail and the Buckeye network."
And the woman who used the Internet to find him now wonders about doing "something meaningful and powerful in the world," using the Internet's capacity.
