Cowbird is a public library of human experience.
A community of tens of thousands of storytellers, located all over the world, use Cowbird to tell deeper, longer-lasting, and more nourishing stories than you’re likely to find anywhere else on the Web.
Cowbird provides a set of free and simple storytelling tools, allowing anyone anywhere to post beautiful heartfelt vignettes, consisting of text, photos, and sound. In this way, the knowledge and wisdom we accumulate as individuals may live on as a part of the commons, available for this and future generations to look to for guidance.
Cowbird is designed to reflect the basic truth that all human lives are interconnected. When people post stories, the system automatically finds interconnections between them, producing an infinite number of collective meta-narratives around people, places, ages, roles, and other common themes.
