David Sawyer is the CEO and founder of TSOLife, also known as The Story of Life.
TSOLife is a web application that lets users leave behind their own legacy for future generations including text, audio and video. David is currently a student at Stetson University with the vision of helping us capture our memories in a frictionless way through a web interface and have them stored forever.
We talk about how the site works, how to get people to record their memories, and even have a little cross-generational competition about technology. We talk about the business model ($79 for 20GB of storage for life) and how he really plans this to be for life. Listen to the podcast for a 20% off coupon on that price.
He tells us about the non-profit foundation they’ve created to work for free in nursing homes and in the later stages of life to capture their memories and give them something fun to talk about. For some reason, we close by talking about whether the caps lock key is a wonderful thing or if it’s pure evil.
