It's Memorial Day in the US, the day we set aside to remember those who have served our country in the Armed Forces and especially those who died to protect our freedoms. There's a new free app named Tributopia: Mapping Our Memories from documentary film makers Open Eye Pictures that is designed to let you remember others who are gone, both today and on any other day.
Tributopia provides a permanent way for people to see and share memories about celebrities and others who have passed away. Launching the app displays a grid of images; today's showed everyone from Steve Jobs to Dennis Hopper, with birth and death dates, cause of death, the age that the person passed, and a photo. In the case of Hopper, there's even an address for the cemetery in which he is buried in Rancho de Taos, NM. Think of Tributopia as an online version of those roadside memorials that dot the highways of our country, and you've got the idea.
