From customer discovery:
How would you decide which memories you would want to be recorded?
- If I were to use it, I would use it for short memories of the Corner Brook Mill Whistle, which I
already have a website on -- I could see it feeding into that project nicely.
(www.whistleproject.com) I also could imagine using it to record my parents' memories from
school, like pranks my father played on teachers or my mother's stories of going to an all female
Would you recommend an app like this to friends? Why?
- Sure. A lot of musicians would use this, people working in the music industry. They
might not have a Facebook proﬁle that’s shareable. But they might be new and not
have a Youtube channel to share audio ﬁles.
How many memories do you think should be part of a legacy project that would be hosted on an app?
- I’m going to think with my children. Once a week, to see how they progress. Great for someone who had
kids with speech issues, to gauge their improvement.
How would you describe an app that records memories?
- I would describe it as something that helps people feel a connection with their past.
