Ourstory, previously known as Wisdom Ark, allows its users to tell their life story with photos, videos (through VideoEgg) and other media placed on a timeline. OurStory's application is browser based and collaborative. Every time a user creates a new event or adds new media to their timeline, an email is sent to any interested parties; family and friends generally. These people can then add their own stories or comments to the newly posted media. Additionally they can add their own media where appropriate and begin the email process again.

OurStory has an automated photo search option that will gather photos from the web that are relevant to the event you are writing about. Users can write about going to a Michael Jackson concert in New York for example of which OutStory will grab pictures.

Although digitally documenting your life online might seem like enough, OurStory allows users to print their timelines in the form of hardcover books. Also, the ability to create multiple timelines can be added through OutStory's premium version which costs $40.

StoryofMyLife is a close competitor.
