Living Social Archive – Wereyouthere.com
Over the past year I have been working on building out several very interesting new startups. In this blog I want to begin to introduce some of this work to my audience.
Wereyouthere is a timeless site concept about creating a living archive that captures and connects us around the memories that matter most in lives. As the web is in UGC overload, it’s increasingly apparent that the content that is most cherished (the experiences we share together) are being lost and hard to find. Wereyouthere provides a platform for us all to experience and share our posts in the “Ourkive“.
When posting to wereyouthere, we ask that the content fits these criteria:
- Will your story, photo or video interest strangers, and not just friends and family?
- Will it stand the test of time a year or more from now?
- Is your story told from your point of view?
So in the age of microblogging, buried blog posts, and the web’s numbing echo effect, the time has come for quality places where we build lasting and human connections. Please take a moment and check this site out and feel free to share a life experience or two.
Be warned, this is a highly addictive site.
