Wayback Archive Description:
PalimPost is taking sticky notes to the cloud era. So far sticky notes could only be used for saving a very short message, as a pointer to a bigger piece of information in our memory. However nothing in our new computing environment behaves this way. Every object now has an internal memory of Giga-Bytes, and our human memory is used for more emotional, social or inspirational information. But the affordances of plain sticky-paper notes are compelling: they are writable and also sticky! So how can we take them to our new ditized world? Enter: The Cloud, allowing digital information to be stored and retrieved swiftly. However, the experience of using the sticky note is about recording a moment, a fleeting thought. This is the goal of PalimPost, to help us capture moments in time, digitize them, and store them on the cloud.
