Cowbird is a digital platform for storytellers created by Jonathan Harris – and one that seeks to stand out from the ephemeral text-message style favored by other social media platforms.
James Hilton: “In a world where you can find 24,800 YouTube videos of ‘cats flushing toilets,’ it’s nice to know that some small part of the World Wide Web still feels ... intimate. Cowbird explains humanity’s sagas through simple human stories. It’s
also a radical experiment in mass participatory journalism. It’s for people interested in a slower kind of storytelling. Creator Jonathan Harris describes it as being two things: a way to keep a beautiful, rich diary of your life, and a way to help document the major saga that shapes our world today. Today, Cowbird is still very small and humble, but it has a big vision.”
