It's been over a year since I wrote a blog post here. And it's been far, far longer since I wrote regularly. At the time, I really enjoyed the whole process. The process of crafting a short story was cathartic. And in re-reading my posts, I felt a sense of accomplishment. Not just in the end result - but also because I now had this incredible reminder of what I did, who I saw and what I thought about the events going on around me at that time and place.. a digital capsule of me, meets the world.
Those that are able to write every day, year after year - like my sister and brother-in-law, I greatly applaud. But it takes a lot of time and effort - and most importantly, diligence, to keep it up. While most of us would probably love the result of having their memories, thoughts and actions compiled, it just isn't in the cards for most. Apparently, me included. But the interesting thing is that almost all of us - actually, anyone with a mobile phone - is already recording bits of their life everyday. It just happens to all live in separate apps, so there's no real record of the flow of your life. And that flow, the thread of your experiences seamlessly woven together, tells a story. While a picture may be worth a thousand words. A few additional words about who, what, when and where is invaluable.
The good news is, there are a handful of companies launching applications that are attempting to create one place to string together your digital memories. But none of them are doing it the way myPlanit, a consumer application launching this winter, is doing. Full disclosure: I'm the CMO/COO and incredibly proud and excited to get this new product to market.
myPlanit is the database of you. It intelligently interconnects your calendar, contacts, places and photos to create the most useful and intuitive way to move through your world--past, present and future. At its core, myPlanit believes all the data you're already capturing - whether a photo, a new name in your contacts or a future data on a calendar - is far more valuable when unified and interconnected. With myPlanit, you can not only move through your past memories but also move more efficiently through your daily life. No more jumping from app to app to handle a basic task, or to strain your brain trying to remember a detail hanging at the tip of your tongue. And, of course, you can also nostalgically scroll through your life. myPlanit seamlessly interconnects all your scattered data to recreate all your life experiences, so you have one place to see and use the details of your life. So even if don't have the time to write a blog post or journal entry everyday, with myPlanit, you won't need to. myPlanit does it automatically - for you.
Sounds great, right?!! No need to worry. Time flies fast, and soon it will be in the app store for your downloading pleasure!
