Welcome

Ticket stubs are everywhere, one of the many receipts in our daily lives - but we all save some from time to time. The Ticketstub project is a place where you can upload scanned images of your saved stubs, and tell a story about that night, that concert, that movie, what happened on that date; basically, ask youself why you saved the stub as a reminder.

If you're new here, check out some stories and read about how and why the site came to be.

If you've got some ticketstubs sitting around, here's a guide to getting an image of it into your computer. Then just upload the photo and tell your story.

Thomas Strickland's Forty-Dollar Friendship recalls a tale that is almost universal: our stupid early dating years. I think I've actually used the same words Thomas has here, with similarly disastrous results.

This site was today's daily pick at coolstop.

I just added an RSS (version 2.0) Feed for the site. Toss this URL into a reader like NetNewsWire or Syndirella to see excerpts from the last ten stories posted to the site.

The site is finally online, and there are a whole host of features. Members can vote on the best stories, archives are already listed by date, type, and location. Some of the stories and accompanying images have been released under a Creative Commons license, and the submission process offers it as an option. Once the site gets more contributions, expect more sorting features and interesting uses of metadata, and more member customization options. I'll also try to highlight the best contributions I find.

For now, I'm just glad to finally have gotten it online. Enjoy, and let me know if you find any bugs.
