There are multitudes of memories, images, and stories that have come from September 11, and now there's a new mobile app that's collected those voices. A company called Broadcastr collaborated with the National September 11th Memorial and Museum and collected thousands of interviews and sound bites from witnesses, first responders, and survivors. And starting next month, the recordings will be made available for free to iPhone and Android phones and on Broadcastr's site. App users can pinpoint their location and hear testimonies from witnesses at that location. "It's the oldest form of communication, the oral tradition," said Scott Lindenbaum, one of the founders of Broadcastr. "Every person in the world participates in oral storytelling all day long. And yet social media is missing an oral storytelling component." [NYP]
