The boundary between online and offline life is disappearing. This is the new paradigm for staying in touch: the "ambient intimacy" that comes from sharing bits of our daily lives with our extended network of contacts. This "digital lifestream" exists as a semi-ephemeral collection of status updates, blog posts, photos, videos, and links. We dip in-and-out of each other's lifestreams -- sampling the output in bits and pieces, not necessarily consuming it all.
Here at Shufflebrain, we're working to game-ify your digital lifestream. We want you to have MORE FUN keeping up with your friends. Why just LOOK at photos, videos and status updates when you can PLAY brain-building puzzle games made from that content? Our gaming engines choose the best, most relevant content created by your network to include in the puzzle games - so you always have something fresh, relevant, and brain-healthy to play.
As a busy working Mom, I've dreamed of having a feed of quick-to-play games that help me stay in touch with people I care about - AND have the one-armed-bandit thrill of connecting with people online. Our first game, Photograb, is a step in that direction. We're excited about taking the next steps -- stay tuned for some exciting announcements, coming soon. :-)
