Memory Streams


The Beginning

Posted in Uncategorized by Memory Streams on June 17, 2010

I’ve been thinking about Memory Stream for more than a decade.  I was always a journal-keeper, documenting the time I lived in Europe and life with my babies.  I got to thinking about how cool it would be if you could look at your life on a timeline.  You would remember the things that happened in your life better and might be able to plan how you want the rest of your life to be.

After I stopped working to take care of my first child, Mark, people asked me if I was going to go back to work.  I said, “Well, not for that company, and not anytime soon”.  I pictured my whole life on a timeline and the very short span of it that Mark would be little.  Since I hadn’t invested a tremendous amount of time into my career development, like a doctor has say, and I could afford not to work, I decided to stay home.  I haven’t regretted a minute of that time with my kids.

I’ve been room parent, Girl Scout leader, HOA board member and Landscape Chair.  I’ve sold a line of jewelry and worked for the US Census.  I went back to school studying Web Graphic Design.  I divorced, remarried, then cared for my new husband while he died of melanoma in November, 2009.

All the while I longed to be documenting my interesting life and that of my kids’ in a database that I could easily enter life events and then search for them later.  This was the beginning of Memory Stream.

A prototype of Memory Stream will be available soon and I can’t wait to share it with you.  We call it “Personal Media”.  It will be a way to create a long-standing personal history.  You can share this information or keep it completely private.  Stay tuned and prepare to use a fantastic product that will let you communicate with your future self.

    Memory Stream sounds like a great idea. I am now a junior in college and would have loved using this thus far. I am a scapbooker myself, but by the time I get to actually making it, the year is usually done and I have trouble remembering the important things. I would love to start using Memory Stream so that in a couple years (and for the rest of my life) I can look back at all the great acheivments, fun memories, and amazing times I had.

    Please let me know when everything is up and running!
