In an era of constant digital sharing, the story of our life is captured in posts, tweets, status updates, Instagram snapshots, Foursquare check-ins and text messages. These are the digital particles of our history, and they are carelessly strewn in umpteen channels, accessible via numerous devices and unlocked with a slew of user-password combinations.
Enter Timehop, a web app that gives your digital content the honor it deserves. A daily mail service, Timehop scans a variety of digital channels, and sends you a daily email with the findings: a summary of the content you produced exactly a year before that day.
Signing up to Timehop is a breeze: you log on with your Facebook account and configure other accounts (Twitter, Instagram, Foursquare and your phone - for digging up historical text messages).
Co-founded by Jonathan Wegner and Benny Wong, Timehop offers a new kind of time travel. [Source: Timehop]
