The Challenge

The end of life is a universal experience. Yet when you are in the experience it feels like alien, uncharted territory. Everything is new -- the emotions, medical questions, financial worries, family communication, legal requirements, you name it -- even though literally millions of people have stood in your same shoes before. How can we learn from everyone who has gone before us and break through the sense that we are in this alone?

The Concept: A Peer Learning Platform Built on Storytelling 

"I Know Something" (IKS) is a peer-to-peer storytelling platform built on short, first-person video stories and simple reflection exercises. It opens a connected and very human door to learning in an often overwhelming, confusing, and emotional experience. The personal stories, links, and exercises help people understand what is happening, reflect on their own experience, and make great end of life decisions for themselves.

How You Can Help: Legal Review for User Terms and Conditions

I will continue to develop the service by engaging more people in storytelling and learning from stories. As I start this next phase I need to make sure the basic legal terms for use and privacy are in place. I've put together draft T&C and wondering if there are any lawyers in our community (or people with access to lawyers) who have experience with the terms and conditions for hosted services. Any volunteers to review what I have and work with me to develop a solid set of initial user terms?

Thanks for your help. You can reach out via comment below and we can go from there!
