Memiary: The Weightless Pocket Diary

Even as a young man, I continue to find my memory deteriorating with the passing of every year. If this is a prelude of things to come, there’s a good chance I won’t remember that I ever wrote for RotorBlog!

There are many Web-reminder tools available to to help jog your brain. The latest one is Memiary, the self-proclaimed “weightless pocket diary.”
The concept is simple: Log in everyday and record up to five memories of the day. That’s it. No long, drawn out posts about how the cashier at the supermarket gave you an attitude and you’re never returning again. Or how that boy made you cry for hours on end. You CAN input that information, but the system forces you to be succinct.

1) Lifetime ban on Store X
2) Dave made my cry for 3 hours

I always joke with people at work that I get home at the end of the day and clean out my cookies. Thanks to Memiary, I can keep track of some of the seemingly insignificant details of the daily grind.

After you plug in your information, you can sort data by date, week, month, year and all time.

What’s nice about the site is that there is not a social aspect to it. No one is there to ‘show off’ about what they did for Halloween or show how many hot babes they’re hanging around with.

So you’re probably thinking, ‘what is Memiary doing that a simple notepad can’t?’ Good point! You could go the paper and pen route, but then you would have to find a safe place to keep them, carry something around with you constantly, and, it would likely take you longer to sift through the ‘archives.’

Aside from logging your activities, the site can also help you expose patterns in your own life. After several weeks of entries you might realize that you need to get a life or perhaps calm down.

To get started you simply need an e-mail address.
