Cowbird explains humanity’s sagas through heartfelt stories. It allows you to keep a multimedia diary of your life, and to collaborate in documenting the overarching “sagas” that shape our world today. Sagas are things like the Japanese earthquake, the war in Iraq, and the Occupy Wall Street movement — things that touch millions of lives and define the human story.
It’s so beautiful, real and participative. Taking all the best things about the web and putting it in one place. Great work.
And just think, what could documenting a campaign look like on this platform?
- Map out the movement relationships
- Capture visual victories
- Share stories of struggle
Etc, etc, etc.
