storytelling is for the cowbirds

With character limits getting shorter everywhere, storytelling is getting reduced to acronyms. TDOA, YNWIM? Exactly.

Enter, a site created by Jonathan Harris, to allow people to share photos and stories in any format they'd like. It's a site that encourages longer storytelling, freeing people from the confines of character limits. Here's how they describe their purpose:

Cowbird allows you to keep a beautiful audio-visual diary of your life, and to collaborate with others in documenting the overarching “sagas” that shape our world today...Our short-term goal is to pioneer a new form of participatory journalism, grounded in the simple human stories behind major news events. Our long-term goal is to build a public library of human experience...

Sounds refreshing.
