Our First Loves

Our First Loves is a multimedia storytelling experiment. Produced by a group of student journalists in an interactive design class at the Medill School of Journalism, it is based on the idea that journalism on the Internet should be about connectivity. Storytellers upload video, audio or transcripts of their tale, and users have the option to rate based on how compelling the story was to them.

Many people have already shared their stories of first love, and you can even view a graph that charts the storyteller by how old they are now compared to the age that they first experienced love.

The site hopes to prove that new media journalism can be the ultimate equalizer, a proof of a human condition with the unique ability to bring even perfect strangers together.
