Jonathan Yankovitch posted an email on the Coworking group with a link to Memolane.
I clicked on the link and……saw something REALLY cool!
If you have been reading my blogs, you pretty much know that I consider Twitter and Facebook as too temporary. You post something, and somewhere between 5 seconds to a day later, it is gone. And worse, it is dang hard to find older posts.
A Blog is better for longevity….that is why I continue to blog. A simple “Search” or look thru the “Categories”….. you can find my very first blog entry way back in 2005 sometime….but not really sure of the date since I did not have Memolane……Still there, still very awesome. 🙂
In my life, I lose track of what happened when. And it gets worse as I get older….shit. Sorry, but, even the new electronic form of storing information….with all the crap I come up with……can be cumbersome and hard to find.
Memolane (when I overcome my major concern with it, see below) can be the solution to all of my memory problems (both human and computer).
Apparently, I can set up a TIMELINE of videos, pictures, notes, comments, entries on Twitter, FB, blogs entries, etc. Once on the timeline, I can simply go back to find it (I’m sure a search is possible).
From the 15 seconds I took to play with Memolane, I have a major concern giving them access to all my most precious sources of information. Picasa, Flickr, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc. I would much prefer to upload stuff, give it links, make comments live etc.
In other words: I would like to upload only what I want to upload, and I really do not want applications with their fingers in my stuff.
Once I can get past that…I see Memolane in my future….
Here is a good theme song for them, I’m sure most of you now know this guy, back when Country was Country:
