Hi, Tom George here and as always thank you for visiting Internet Billboards. If you are new here we are a growing community of content curators. If you are not familiar with that, here is my definition.

Curation is a significant part of the future of the Internet, a digital curator is someone who finds, organizes, presents and shares valuable information (content) on their respective topic, in a way that provides special context and or creates a unique engagement with his or her followers. In actuality when done correctly over time it positions the content curator as an expert in his or her respective field and defines their reputation as a thought leader. A good curator will mix curation with his or her own original content as to give interpretations for the express purpose of allowing others to form their own conclusions.

So here I am curating a piece on…drum role.

Brian August Plans to Augment

Reality with Twin Towers

iPhone App

About this project

Hello. I’m Brian August, and I’ve been obsessed with 110 Stories for almost 10 years. When I started thinking about the idea, Augmented Reality didn’t exist, nor did iPhones. But they both do now, and I’ve assembled a talented team to build the 110 Stories Augmented Reality iPhone App and launch it by the beginning of September. I’m asking for your help to make my obsession a reality. Every penny I am raising will be used to design, build and launch the app. The project itself is not intended to make a profit.

Orient. Augment. Comment. Activate the app on your iPhone and you’ll be guided towards the World Trade Center. Once properly oriented, augmented reality kicks in and renders their silhouette — in a pencil-like outline during the day and in shimmering light at night. Snap a picture, fine tune the image, add a personal story, and submit it to www.110stories.com

So enjoy, continue to the good stuff by using the image to get the full story.

Curator’s Notes Help Brian make 110 Stories app become a reality. How important are the memory and the legacy of the World Trade Centers.

Please comment and share on Facebook and Twitter, Brian only has until August 23rd to raise the rest of the money, so help make this a reality, or even an augmented reality.

Just watch the video and see his heart felt genuineness for this project and you will see what I mean. This is the power we all have now, the power to make a difference. Together we can make a difference.
