Short stories extended
Many places are important historically as well as in real-time or near real-time…but there isn’t a relationship between the two. The world wide web tends to encourage static versions of history that have to be updated manually, whereas stories from a landmark like Trafalgar Square are constantly evolving.
A Localweb.is a URL like /trafalgar-sq-stories could hold both types of stories while remaining specific and relevant to the location. Tales of protests held there over the years, photos of Elizabeth Taylor feeding thousands of pigeons in the late 1940s, links to the Monty Python sketches filmed there, a story of the lovers who met and fell in love there decades ago. These are the stories otherwise lost to history that inspire casual visitors and long time residents alike.
We are building the local web and sharing a new way to use it each day.
