“We do not remember days, we remember moments.The richness of life lies in memories we have forgotten.” Cesare Pavese
In a social world where we digitally ping in a stream of lifecast moments, remembering what we exactly did at any moment can become a challenge. I have been experimenting with an online service called Memolane . This beta service aggregates all a users social pings into a visual timeline. Within it, a user can also create stories for postings to create a digital diary of sorts.
Memolane began as an idea pitched by Eric Lagier at Startup Weekend Copenhagen in April 2010 and was a finalist for the 2011 SXSWi Awards. Overall, the simplest ideas are always the best and this mash-up demonstrates its value – at face value.
