"Historypin is a way for millions of people to come together to share glimpses of the past and build up the story of human history.

 

... Everyone has history to share: whether its sitting in yellowed albums in the attic, collected in piles of crackly tapes, conserved in the 1000s of archives all over the world or passed down in memories and old stories.

 

Each of these pieces of history finds a home on Historypin, where everyone has the chance to see it, add to it, learn from it, debate it and use it to build up a more complete understanding of the world.

 

Historypin has been developed by the not-for-profit company We Are What We Do [ http://wearewhatwedo.org/ ], in partnership with Google."

ghbrett's insight:

This is a novel approach to the idea of sharing photographs and content in a historical timeline, geographically mapped, and arranged by categories. There are a couple projects that target education with suggestions for teachers. This model would be one that other disciplines might consider to engage public, professional, or organizations to share topical multimedia and content.
