Another great experience at the Startup Weekend, this time in Enschede, Netherlands, first prize with the fantastic project Moving Story, this is the happy team.
Startup Weekend is a business course, a teamwork course and a pitch course all rolled into one, and the crunching is always great fun, is it weird to love it?
Moving Story is a genius concept by a design student from Enschede (waiting to know how to spell her name right, will write it soon) to create a mapping of all (audio) stories surrounding a place, an aural navigation where locals offer their insight and provide depth to each passage, in times when purposeful or accidental tourism become more and more superficial (I'd still go with actually *talking* with the locals, but this app can offer good conversation starters as well).
Our team was quite large with specialists of all kinds, so we got a nice demo with beautiful graphics and kickass presentation. I wonder if this project will keep going, because it's something I would like to join for a longer period, great opportunities for an ethnographer :)
