  1. Hi Richard,

    great idea. For my dad’s funeral I had created a Powerpoint slidedeck with pictures I had scanned in and just watching those pictures already were well received.

    And when I watched the video it occurred to me that I would like to have your product to create a record of little Bram’s life. We experience so many great things, take pictures and make videos, but they’re not connected and without narrative.


  2. Yes, we’re conscious that recording the life of kids is an important area to think about. There’s an irony that the begining and end of life seems to be where this need for memories and reflection come to a head.

  3. Hey Richard,

    Have you guys also thought about the obsoletness of the device(s) used to do this recording and how to cope with that? Just because it is digitised doesn’t mean it is easily compatible, right, is there a smart way to deal with this?

  4. The way we’re thinking about it is that the object itself what we’re calling a Technology Heirloom. So the fact that it acrues content, and itself ages, is a positive thing. The device itself, though, has to be self contained in a way that allows it to still show content regardless of whether the service that created that content still exists. Our ideal is that you may spend years crafting the content of a Timecard, but at the end of YOUR life it can just be unplugged and passed on to your offspring without any baggage or burden of services, or reliance on the existance of any other tech.
    So as long as the power supply standards don’t change, and the device can be serviced, than you shold be able to keep it alive.
