The goal of this project was to improve the quality of life by allowing user to share transient and volatile ‘life-information’ about their everyday world. From their internet site:

… One aspiration is to find easier ways to share information in a communities knowledge commons.  For example it is likely that there is an elderly person within a hundred meters who could use help or even just company. Within two hundred meters there must be twelve opportunities to make some money, or do some volunteering. There must be at least one found lost kitten and ten lawnmowers one could borrow in that same distance, twenty cars going somewhere useful, many potential business partners to start new ventures with and surely one person of complementary interests to share a life with. …

Although of great interest their internet site seems to be abandoned since 2002. In addition, it is not clear what they meant by “transient and volatile” life information.
