Twitter Friend of the Week: Story of My Life

Twitter Friend of the Week

I absolutely love the idea of promoting one another when we can! As a result, I have a project called "Twitter Friend of the Week." I'll showcase one or two of my Twitter Friends so that you can "meet" them.

This week, my featured Twitter Friend is Story of My Life. Talk about unique! Read all about them:

What is your primary business?
I’m one of the co-founders of the website. We are the world’s largest online collection of life stories – collecting stories today and preserving for the future. We’re at the cusp of a rapidly changing digital world – the first generation has been born who will have always had the internet and their lives recorded digitally. We want to be sure that folks understand that leaving some digital footprint behind, i.e. what your future ancestors are searching about you, is actually what YOU want them to read, not what other people say. You should control your own legacy – through written stories, audio or videos, pictures, etc.

What is unique about you or your business?
We’re the ONLY ones who actually make a legitimate effort at creating a “forever” digital archive. Others use the word “forever” cavalierly, but have absolutely no mechanism for doing so. Companies come and go, even technology has a limited lifespan (i.e. a DVD lasts only 20 years) and are also prone to loss or destruction. We have a separate, 501(c)(3) Foundation whose sole purpose is to store Stories, pictures, videos etc in perpetuity in its digital vault. Kind of like an insurance policy and an archive for you.

What is one fun thing about yourself that most of us don't know?
I have 3 novels inside me that are dying to get out – the urge to write is strong. Just need a few more hours in the day. Or maybe I just suck and use that as an excuse…

Do you work from home or an outside office?
Both – California traffic is awful, so when I can call in “sick” I work from home as much as possible. The downside? I work WAY longer when at home because I feel guilty… ha

What is your favorite computer application?
Our site, but Twitter is a lot of fun too – to us, MySpace is the rock concert, Facebook is the class reunion, Twitter is ‘happy hour,’ LinkedIn is the corporate water cooler, and Story of My Life is the family backyard bbq! But there is a lot of bad, really bad software out there.

What is your favorite food?
Actually my favorite time regarding food is feeding my dogs – they’re so funny to watch eat. One dog doesn’t care, the other wolfs it down, then slowly tries to slide to get the other one’s food. Then he realizes what she’s doing and gobbles it down before she can get it….. People food – Shari’s Berries!

If you could be a super hero, what would you be called and what would your super powers be?
I’d have to make up a super hero who had a memory like the world’s fastest super computer to store all the life stories about people, remember the details and be able to play them back (ok that’s starting to sound a little creepy – wasn’t there a movie with Robin Williams about that??).

What one piece of advice would you give someone who wants to get into your line of business?
You must have a passion for life stories and believe that everyone has a story worth telling. Everyone.

As you can see, Story of My Life is extremely interesting! Check out Story of My Life on Twitter at @storyofmylife.
