What’s a meosphere?
Everyone has one, though most are undocumented. Your meosphere
is everywhere you’ve been, everything you’ve done, and everything you want to do—it
defines your own personal world, in a very personal way. Meosphere.com collects
a plethora of deep questions (and shallow topics)—and then gives you the chance
to document how they may have shaped your lifetime and personality. Creating an
official meosphere is a perfect way to impress a date. (“Wow, you’ve really eaten
all of the world’s spiciest peppers? Baby, you are hot!”) It can leave a legacy
for your grandkids. (“Grandpa’s first car was a 1980 Chevette, poor guy.”) It can
even help you determine what you’re going to do the rest of your life. (If you can
play Ping-Pong in just one more country, your dream will finally be complete.) So
what’s your meosphere? Jump in and create yours now!
Where did Meosphere come from?
It started with a two year old—my oldest daughter, Tori, who unknowingly
had quite a substantial meosphere for her young life. I was in graduate school in
Philadelphia, took a summer internship Brussels, Belgium, and took the family
along for the ride. And what a ride it was.
Suddenly, my toddler was experiencing
Neuschuanstein Castle and the Tower of London. While other two year olds were throwing
tantrums in the local supermarket, Tori had her own sizeable fit outside Paris’
Notre Dame. The sad realization was, I knew she wouldn’t remember any of it. So
that year, I created a book for each of us entitled Where in the World Have You Been? It
documented our travels, our adventures, and our reactions. At two, Tori had been to an impressive 25 states
and 7 countries. And the concept for Meosphere was born.
Realizing that a physical book would quickly become gargantuan with all the lists we could think of, the web was the obvious place to build Meosphere. Just as obvious was the fact that every person out there has a meosphere
equally unique and meaningful to collect or to share.
I now have four kids and the
youngest, Brendon, is now three. World travel takes on a different meaning with
four little ones in tow. As a result, Brendon’s barely been 20 miles from home.
But after checking out Meosphere.com, the B-Man has big ambitions.
