What is Waevio ?

This site is made because there’s too much information circling around us, and a lot of them are fragmented and unorganized to people. With Waevio the main goal is to sum all that information into one place, so you can make your own Open Global Diary, where you can connect the Global with what’s personal. Because it provides you with insight of allot what’s happening around the world in one place and possibility for user’s to connect with the global scene.

Who is your target user?

People who like to view the world as an open diary for them to read and leave their mark in it. For those who want to see how some events or persons have affected others through history and what could they potentially do. For those who like to look for connections between apparently unconnected, information’s and events.

Why did you build Waevio? What problem are you taking on?

We created our product in order to help people connect all the information that is our there on the web. The problem of too much clutter, mess and unorganized information and events that are out there. It needs to be resolved and put into something coherent and that is our vision of Waevio. To make sense of the world around us. Information without context is meaningless. Waevio strive’s to give its users context or let them create their own, in which the causality between places, events and information can be observed.

How is your product different from what is currently available?

Short answer would be: Because it connects things. Long answer is that we are offering users to see how some event’s are linked to others, how it can cause a lot of different effects and ripples through the timeline and the chance for them to leave their own mark in all of this. Create, discuss, edit or share your events and connect them with others you might find meaningful.

Tell us your founding story. Was there an “ah ha” moment?

That moment happened when we saw the simple mess of information’s that was out there on the web. There are a lot of places that specialize in one type or group or information but they remain islands, where we see a intertwined web of information in which a lot of things are connected and you never know what event or memoir can lead you to another, maybe something completely new.

Tell us about your founding team and their backgrounds.

Our team organizer and guide is Diana without whom we would be on coffee/cigarette/launch breaks forever. Also she brings flair to the team. She has a degree in graphical design and great insight into psychology, literature and arts.

Then there is Tanya our very own jukebox and little eye opener with amazing talent for finding just the right visual stuff we need. She has a degree in Human Resources and know a lot about what people want to see.
Next is Danilo, our moving Encyclopedia Britannica, trivia grand master and bookworm. You ask it – he knows it (or will know really soon). He has a degree in psychology and is fascinated with fashion. Go figure.

Last, but not the least, is me Mark. I’m the local blabbermouth, happy-go-to kind of guy. I have a degree in Marketing and wanna hear what people think just about anything. As mentioned above, there are a lot of connections around us.
