Ryan Tate (Wired) writes about Caterina Fake, founder of the app Findery (and Flickr), who thinks short-lived content that is created quickly, like Snapchat, will be replaced with carefully written content. Findery allows “people to post substantive reflections about where they are—think: a few paragraphs or more—and it encourages them to read reflections posted by others. The idea is that you will show up in a particular place and read the ‘notes’ left by others.” There are other startups buying into the enduring content movement such as Medium, Atavist, and WordPress.com’s Automattic, all which allow content for more lengthy stories and articles. Findery users have ranged from Quito, Ecuador; Riga, Latvia; Paris, France; and various U.S. cities including San Francisco, Cincinnati, Seattle, Chicago, and New York.
