For a while now we (Corrinne and Eric) have been experimenting with various concepts of how to implement an idea she had of providing a place on the net to build a community for and of our family and friends. A place where we could share photos, pictures, and more, with each other easily, to bridge the distances and help us to stay close.
Corrinne came up with this very cool concept of taking advantage our ability to create a network of small web sites, tied together by a common name that is easy to remember, give each member a unique address allowing us to share with whomever we want, while focused towards removing the barriers and hassles that were making it hard up till now. No more ads, long confusing web addresses, or (we hope) frustrations caused by confusing and difficult viewing of photo galleries, and especially simplifying the process of creating and uploading photos into them.
By now, you all probably know the we are working towards supporting ourselves by putting years of computer experience to work for ourselves, instead of some faceless corporation by doing web design. We thought, well why not also put some of our new skills into something for the people who matter most to us at the same time.
