A friend of mine let me know about his latest venture. Alex Limberis is the CEO of a new Silicon Valley startup, Lifebits.
Lifebits is a personal content sharing service that makes it easier for the average consumer to capture, catalog and share their digital memories.
Alex and company are genuinely excited about this service and it will formally launch within the next couple of months. Lifebits aims to solve real problems for real consumer that capture a lot of life events and then struggle to store, share, and catalog them in a sensible way.
Alex Limberis stated, “Lifebits was created to solve the problems my family and I had, and I suspect that your family has as well. The ultimate goal here is to make this simple enough for the non techie to greatly enrich the family sharing experience.”
