Vietnam Veterans Memorial is Now Digital

Vietnam Veterans Memorial (The Vietnam Wall) - Footnote.com

original sketch of that concept

I first met Chris Willis of Footnote last December when he was helping work out some concepts w/ Daylife. During one of those days he mentioned an extension of Footnote that was about digitizing the Vietnam Veterans Memorial where each name on the wall could have information added. It sounded like a great idea at the time and now the site has launched to great acclaim and media coverage. Take a look for yourself at http://go.footnote.com/thewall. You can follow more info about the launch at Launching The Wall. Sometime in the not so distant future I’ll try to have an interview w/ Chris to talk about the project.

Here’s a couple additional links he sent my way
