Since 2003, nonprofit StoryCorps has collected 65,000 recordings for oral history project; with new app, they hope to exponentially increase the number of participants.
"Since 2003, Brooklyn-based non-profit organization StoryCorps has encouraged people to ask each other meaningful questions. As an oral history project, it has been very successful–so far, StoryCorps has archived 65,000 interviews, which it claims is the largest single collection of human voices ever gathered. The recordings, conducted in StoryCorps’ booths across the U.S., are stored in American Folklife Center of the Library of Congress, with excerpts broadcast on NPR. With the recent release of its first app for iOS and Android, StoryCorps has dramatically expanded its reach." -- Catherine Shu, TechCrunch.com
