Remember Buffalo Map Beta

I have completed a beta system for entering in memories for The Remember Buffalo Project . Click on submit memory beta once you are at the site. It is a link at the top of the page. I will be adding a lot of new features in the next couple weeks. If you add a memory to the beta site, make it a real memory or delete it when you are done.

image

To add memories, click on the map and then fill out the form on the left. A memory marker will remain there with the information for future visitors. You can simply type links like on estrip in the memories and they will turn into link icons.

To delete memories. You can only delete memories created on your computer. I am going to make it so you can only delete memories submitted from your computer within five minutes. Right now there is no time limit as this is a beta and I anticipate people deleting a lot.

The map is simply google maps, so use it as you woud use google maps.

Facilitation Madness

I am trying to assemble my team for this brainstorming facilitiation on Saturday so that The Remember Buffalo Project can get started. I am kind of excited about it. I think this project will revolution the concept of collecting historical information in the same way that blogs changed media publication. It just involves much less commitment on the end of the writer.

paulSideKick: My neighbor is getting her master in creativity
paulSideKick: and she does these brainstormign faciliations

The Remember Buffalo Project

Today (e:matthew), (e:terry) and I went to the Buffalo Historical Society to get inspired for The Remember Buffalo Project . I am so excited now. They had so much information but were missing exactly what i want to capture. The personal memories associted with the historical events, places, and architechture.

There was the great quote about the building of the 33 which divided the city into two sections. The quote said

By the mid 20th century, the automobile and superhighway further transformed the city. Private cars allowed more people to live farther from work. Suburbs became linked to offices downtown by networks of superhighways. The highways divided many of the old neighborhoods.]



Here are some pics from the Kennsigton being built.

What they are missing is the thousands personal accounts that I plan on capturing with the Buffalo memory network

Today I added a linkdump for the memory project where people can add relevent research links and ideas.

image

They also had this incubator, I couldn't get over how future yet retro it was.

image

And a great sound clip jingle from Sattlers the department store that used to be on Broadway before broadway started to die. I love the jingle, and I could get pctures now we just need the memories to go with it.

File Sharing for Memories

I have thought about The Remember Buffalo Project [inlink]paul,3883[/inlink] some more. I think that it is should be seen as a great opportunity for younger people to interact with the older people in their lives. Think of it like this.
Imagine the type of faily interaction this will inspire as families get togther and look at the documents on the site. You could even print out the documents and pass them around. The images and quotes, news paper clipping and other media will surely draw memories giving families a chance to share history. But it doesn't stop that. From there the memories can be inputed into the website, opening memories up to the benefits of file sharing.

From there the memories can be inputed into the The Remember Buffalo Project website, opening memories up to the bebenfits of file sharing. What makes it more interestoing is that people can invoke these memories on location from their cell phones downtown.

By sending these memories from the The Remember Buffalo Project to the location via cell phones, the memories are able going to transcend the family boundaries that they would otherwise be trapped inside of. In effect we will be allowing memories to take on a life of their own and haunt the locations they were inspired from.

Like me, I was trapped in a sunless room helping people attain mediocracy all day. Some people make it sort of worth it. But I would like sun.

At least I got to eat at spot. I am the tyranosaurus. The prices are so ridiculous here. The sandwich now costs $7.25.

The Remember Buffalo Project

The Remember Buffalo Project is the plan for my next big project after (e:strip). Don't worry I won't abandon (e:strip) but it will be fun to work on some other not for profit, life enriching web network.

The Remember Buffalo Project will begin it's year long project development during October of 2005. This extensive media network is being created to enable visitors of the downtown Buffalo, NY area to interact with personal experiences that occurred in the region via a map based interface on the internet and a mobile technology interface on cell phones.

Memory fragments will come from local residents and visitors os the area and shall be categorized by genre and time period so that "memory tourists" on location throughout the downtown area will be able to "peel back time" using their mobile devices. Unlike typical historical and architectural tours, information is intended to be personal in nature.

You can read more about it at the project site , which currently only contains an overview plus list of phases.

image

We will need many volunteers for The Remember Buffalo Project to help collect, scan and process documents, collect and process memories, make phone calls, arrange meetings, write for grants, test the The Remember Buffalo Project website, test the cell phone system, etc. If anyone is interested please contact me.
