Blogtoberfest Day 23
Have you heard of History Pin? As a scrapbooker, I was very excited when I heard about it today on the radio, and I wanted to share it. It’s essentially a global scrapbook!
Not-for-profit We Are What We Do launched (with hundreds of partners, including Google) Historypin in July 2011 “to help people come together from across different generations, cultures and places, around the history of their families and neighbourhoods, improving personal relations and building stronger communities.” Through their web site and mobile apps (iPhone and Android), participants can “pin” photos, audio, video or text recollections to the Historypin map.
One of the project’s long-term goals is “to be the largest global archive of human history!” As a scrapbooker you’re already gathering your family’s stories and photos, so perhaps you’ll want to contribute to this new archive.
