The Word is Out (What a Week!)


Last weekend, NPR began promoting The Place + Memory Project on the air and online.  The response was incredible.

As if it wasn’t cool enough to hear Scott Simon and Liane Hansen plugging the project on the air and on the NPR Soapbox blog, we’ve received hundreds of compelling stories and suggestions through emails, blog comments, phone messages, photos, videos and the amazing world of Web 2.0 …

We want to say “THANK YOU VERY VERY VERY MUCH,” to everyone who shared their ideas and stories with us.  We’re busy sorting through stories, finding the location for our second piece.  Based on what we’ve seen so far, it’s going to be amazing.

This summer, NPR’s Weekend Edition is featuring stories from The Place + Memory Project as a series. The series begins in early June, coinciding with the launch of our online map where you’ll be able to create pages for your remembered places.

  1. Great job! I was happy to take part in your final testing and hope the project is a great success. I posted another entry about “Rowan & Ridge” in north St. Louis — with audio! I will probably post more about this location, but am still getting used to the wiki format.
