Memoriam

I want to replicate the feeling of memory.

Rationale

Memories are temporary. Memories fade.

Today, we're empowered with several tools to prevent this. We have devices that constantly track our locations and monitor our activity. I want to use these tools to allow us to travel through our past.

I want to replicate the feeling of walking down a familiar road and seeing a place we have a particularly fond memory of, but in the digital world. Moreover, I want to be able to share this experience with others who may not have lived the same life experiences I have had, and to be able to link across experiences between people.

Further, I'd like to add a nostalgic aspect that we do not often feel in the real world – one spent on the internet.

(This isn't a very good name… it should be catchier.)

Information

Not everything has to be linked to a location, but most browsing is location-based.

Rough Idea

Temporal View

Cutscenes happen like a video game with fast travel. Pressing 'play' on a day starts with a map and a first location. It will zoom in when digital activ

Spacial View

Visit location -> see everything visible in that location. A lot of this is already handled by Google Maps. You should be able to enter the other views from here so that viewing a location can trigger a memory.

Textual View

This is a traditional dictionary view. It puts text notes first and allows for the browsing of linked information, much like other dictionaries. I'd like a view that operates similar to my wiki.
