Sticky Shadows

Scott Page's picture
Cool application underway by Socialight. Sticky Shadows are digital post-it notes for urban areas. I like the idea of neighborhood narratives.

From their website:
"How's it Used?
-- I leave a note for all my friends at the mall to let them know where I'm hanging out. All my friends in the area see it.
-- A woman shows all her close friends the tree under which she had her first kiss.
-- An entire neighborhood gets together and documents all the unwanted litter they find in an effort to share ownership of a community problem.
-- A food-lover uses Socialight to share her thoughts on the amazing vanilla milkshakes at a new shop.
-- The neighborhood historian creates her own walking tour for others to follow.
-- A group of friends create their own scavenger hunt.
-- A tourist takes place-based notes about stores in a shopping district, only for himself, for a time when he returns to the same city.
-- A small business places StickyShadows that its customers would be interested in finding.
-- A band promotes an upcoming show by leaving a StickyShadow outside the venue."
