New dream capture technology - discussion about the implications of a global dream database

hello everyone,

I was curious what everyone thinks about this article:

http://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2013/09/an-app-to-build-a-database-of-the-worlds-dreams/279753/

Since it seems like you could connect w/ a global community around dreaming if dreaming was crowdsourced.

Thanks!

Re: New dream capture technology - discussion about the implications of a global dream database

I had read about this app just recently. I can see where it 'might' be helpful in remembering dreams but that would be about all it would do, if it does that. Pulling keywords really doesn't do much since the keywords are in a symbolic language and have to be interpreted. Unless the dreamer has a good knowledge of dream analysis that aspect of the product is useless. As for adding to research I question the motives behind the product. Overall I think it is a ploy to market a product to make a profit. I wouldn't buy it or use it.
