is a simple tool for telling stories, and a public library of human experience.
Cowbird is a small community of storytellers, interested in telling
deeper, longer-lasting, more nourishing stories than you're likely to
find anywhere else on the Web. We are building a public library of human
experience, so the knowledge and wisdom we accumulate as individuals
may live on as part of the commons, available for this and future
generations to look to for guidance.
Cowbird is also experimenting with a new form of participatory
journalism, allowing people from all over the world to collaborate in
documenting the overarching "sagas" that affect our lives today. Sagas
are things like the Japanese earthquake, the war in Iraq, and the Occupy Wall Street
movement — things that touch millions of lives and shape the human
story. We believe the real story of a saga is the story of every single
person touched by the saga. But it's never been possible to tell that
kind of story — until now.
