Welcome to Austin's Collective Memory Bank
Also Note: There have been several cases of requests for access that we granted by email but nothing happens after that. If you feel that you might have been one of those cases.. try again!
As time passes, it becomes clear that we need to capture the many things that made Austin what it is today. This experiment is to do so by capturing snippets of memory and letting the community add and comment at will. The result should be a social memory bank about Austin and how we lived and loved our city.
You'll find a decidedly counter-cultural theme in these pages. Whether you acknowledge it or not... that attitude is one of the primary forces that shaped Austin. It emerges today as a "Keep Austin Weird" slogan. This site is dedicated to the things which that slogan strives to keep.
Come on folks... you lived it. Write it down. Click a category and get started or just browse around and remember the way it used to be.
