Thanks for the Memories ... That'll Be $40

A new Internet venture called MemoryArk is looking for 50 people to "Write About Funny, Important, Pivotal Life Moments."

MemoryArk is a company that captures your life story and the stories of those close to you. You can create posts, upload images, use our question bank, invite others and share stories. It's a great way to stay connected with family and friends. It's also a great way to document your life for future generations.

Currently, we are in the Alpha testing phase and will be launching our Beta product in May. We would like to find a group that will make a two month commitment, create 10 or more life stories and invite 5 friends and family to participate. Our goal is to have you capture your life story and share with friends and family.

In return for making this commitment, we will offer you a lifetime premium membership ($40 per year value). Our product is very exciting and will be treasured for many years to come. [Link]
Mathew Ingram took MemoryArk for a test run a few weeks ago, and came away utterly ambivalent.
[W]ill people pay the kind of money that MemoryArk wants them to? I’m not sure. The idea of an online repository for memories, a way of keeping track and sharing those family stories with others, definitely appeals to me (what can I say - I’m getting old), but I don’t know if it’s a business you can charge up front for.
