Presenting My Thesis Today!
I am presenting my thesis project, Telestory, today (Thursday) at 5:00 PM ET.
About Telestory: Mark Twain demanded that 100 years pass before the publication of his memoirs so that everyone referenced therein was no longer living. What stories do you want to pass on to future generations of your family and how long will you wait to reveal them? Telestory auto-generates calls at a determined frequency (once a month, twice a year) and prompts the user to record a story on a theme. By default, all stories remain private until the user’s 85th birthday unless the user chooses to release them sooner. While we can’t (yet) live forever, our voices can.

Thanks to all of you who have participated in the early beta testing and for all the support along the way! It’s been a lot of fun building this, and I can’t wait to continue developing the site over the next few months.
