I find the idea of having a human history record written by the people themselves, liberating. However, this is not the only reason I wanted to get involved, it also touched me on a more personal level. A few years ago my mother unexpectedly passed away. It has been tough coming to terms with the loss but, the most heart-breaking thought for me was that my children will never know her. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if one day my children and grandchildren could digitally access her entire life through pictures/videos, thoughts? Well now, they can and I think that’s beautiful.
