What Is StoryPress?
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to hear the actual voice of your ancestors, as they tell their life stories? For years, people have been interviewing and recording their ancestors, but finding a safe place to store and easily retrieve later, is a whole other story! How do we help save these memories that fade over time, and when remembered, bits and pieces are often left out or forgotten?
Well Mike Davis has decided to do something about it, by creating StoryPress. StoryPress recognizes that spoken stories capture something special – an authenticity that transcends generations and deserves to be archived in a personalized way. Until now, it has never been so easy to collect and catalog the honest, enduring quality of spoken stories via your own personal “Library.”
One of the things I love about StoryPress, is that it is very Web2.0. As is the case with most smart people, Mike Davis has made something complicated, so easy that even your grandmother can use it! Once your storybook is created, the StoryPress Library then provides you with a personalized hub from which you can grow and share, via e-mail, Facebook or Twitter.
Well don’t just take my word for it, listen to the man that is helping us preserve our family memories in real-time.
