Anycdote was inspired by Humans of New York, a photo blog focused on the anonymous stories of people in New York City. We wanted to make the experience more personal and more interactive while still maintaining the anonymity of HONY.

Anycdote allows users to anonymously pin their stories (anycdotes) in the form of audio files to exact geographic locations. Other users will then hear these anycdotes on shuffle based on their proximity to other pinned anycdotes. Users can favorite or flag anycdotes to help bring the most inspiring anycdotes to the popular page.

Future iterations of anycdotes will allow users to filter through massive amounts of anycdotes for specific types of content.
