My first story “Yesterday’s Memories” on Cowbird was included on in a featured collection “Found Photographs” on the front page of Cowbird.com today. This poem, photo and story was also published here at Notion Tree.
For those unfamiliar with Cowbird.com, it is an interesting and different concept of collecting and curating meaningful content. I find it refreshing because it is different than the fast paced momentary gratification that is Twitter, Facebook, etc. Not that there is anything wrong with that, just that there are ways to use the resources of the internet for more permanent curating of creative content. Our books, magazines and letters of the modern tech age. In a way, the internet is still in it’s infancy with a lot of room for growth and direction. Blogs, photo and music sites as well as other avenues of communications are opening up and are encouraging a new age of writers and creative people by providing a platform in the clouds of opportunity.
Not that this so new, but there are ideas and concepts, like Cowbird, yet to be built and explored. Tech startups are growing like weeds. This is a time of opportunity. Some of the weeds will fall by the wayside. Some will become flourishing and thriving growth for our future.
Just some rambling thoughts for the day…
