StubStory.com — Maybe now they'll believe you were really there

34rty

Wrote Luke O'Neil in a Wall Street Journal story, "You've been holding on to those old ticket stubs for a reason — if you have a scanner and a computer, it's time to earn some retroactive bragging rights."

Speaking of which, it just occurred to me: why should you need a separate scanner?

Why can't you lay a document on your computer screen and scan it?

Bet that happens soon.

I know I'd I'd buy one.

O'Neil's WSJ story continued, "That's the beauty of the site: it lets the faceless names in the crowd assert their own place in historic events.... If we've learned one thing from the barrage of status updates from our friends at concert venues and sports arenas lately, it's that the only thing better than going to a memorable live event is being able to brag to everybody who isn't present that you scored tickets."

"If you're like the users of... StubStory.com, you'll take the ticket stubs you've been keeping for sentimental reasons, scan them, post your memories online and garner all the retroactive cred you've been missing out on."

"But years later, none of those cherished ticket stubs end up being exactly alike either in appearance or personal significance. That's the beauty of the site: It lets the faceless names in the crowd assert their own place in historic events."
