The Open Source Project Spec: With Reference To Me


stand out from the crowd

The application that we’ll be developing in the next phase of the HVP will allow the user to record and then look up everything that happened from day to day.

With this application, each day you can record:

  • Music you listen to
  • Pictures you take
  • Who you sent and received email from
  • Who you chatted with
  • Where you were and where you went
  • Notes you make about the day
  • Accomplishments
  • Insights and ideas
  • People you meet…

you get the idea.

Some of this is recorded automatically for you while the application is running. Some you enter. Some will be manual today with a goal of making it automated in future versions.  The data you record will be local to your phone unless you choose to upload it to the (to be created) web site.

Plus ça change…

Yes, this is a change in the vision for the next phase, but I think it will better illustrate

  • The phone functionality
  • Transmedia Storytelling
  • Coding for WP7
