What is this site about?
This site is a place for people to create, share and compare their personal stories. It's a ongoing prototype for Stefan Schutt's Master of Arts project at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia.
Below you can read the stories that people have created. Click on the Story Title link and the story will appear in a new window. The story will either appear as a narrative (going down the page) or an image gallery (going across the page). Soon there will a third story type, the scrapbook, and this will appear much like, as the name suggests, a personal scrapbook.
What are these personal stories? In technical terms they are collections of images, writing, sounds and other files that people have uploaded to this site and arranged into an order for display on their website.
If you would like more information, the entry page for story creators is here: http://www.smallhistories.com/about. If you would like to add your story or stories to the site, email me (stefan.schutt (at) vu.edu.au) and I will create a username and password for you. Eventually, when it's been tested properly, the site will be available to anyone to add their stories.
NOTE: THIS SITE IS UNFINISHED AND IN DEVELOPMENT. STAY TUNED - IT'S BEING FIDDLED WITH AND TUNED UP AS YOU READ. (JUNE 2007)
