Collective Memory. A collection of sites which are creating collective memory on the web. A personal favourite is TimeSlips, a storytelling project with people with Alzheimer's.

Yes. Beautiful. Would that memory could guarantee we don't repeat mistakes of the past.

Thanks.

The stories at TimeSlips are so great. What a wonderful find.

The Virtual Memorial Garden (maintained by Lindsay of Bifurcated Rivets) is another great site which would fit in well here.

I think one of the implicit appeals of MetaFilter is this sense that we are partaking in the construction of collective memory. We are creating a shared memory of events as they unfold. I think this partly explains why members post news events or obituaries. They want to initiate some kind of social memory via the MeFi tribe.

Nice post, plep.

I hope they have that page placed in their favorites.
