Capturing stories, emotions and memories
In the last twenty years we saw a huge development of publishing platforms, but a small advance in reading and distribution techniques/formats.
Internet as a whole is a way of capturing stories, emotions and memories: we have now a full capability to record, craft, edit, publish, share and mashup personal stories, but we have still limited ways to find the ones interesting for us at the right moment and to distinguish between ephemeral status and lasting ones.
In the last twenty years we saw a huge development of publishing platforms but a small advance in reading and distribution techniques: we produce too much contents and we still may have nothing to read because it’s too difficult to find the right content for us in this moment.
This is true also for a particular type of content: recommendations about travels. We have more and more informations but we don’t use digital contents and data about places at their best yet. Pleens is our way to answer the need human have to dream about places before actually going there: to accomplish to task we think we have to get rid of three tyrannies: time, norm and rationality.
