The Stories You Haven’t Heard

I heard about this cool new web app from Tina over at Swiss-Miss called Proust. The gist? It gives you a list of questions you can ask you parents, grandparents, friends, and so on to help start conversations and help them share the awesome stories from their life you haven’t heard.

I love the concept, but I’m not sure I dig it as a web app. That’s not really something the people I’d love to hear this stuff from would use.

I’m tempted to use Proust to get some conversation question ideas, and use a flip cam or digital voice recorder to run an interview. It would make for some great mini-documentaries of photo slideshow narratives.

Thoughts?
