Rakontu is a Web application that small groups of people can use together to share and work with their stories. It's for any group of people with stories to share and a reason to share them. Members build shared "story museums" that they can draw upon to achieve common goals like promoting a cause, learning from each other, and finding solutions to problems. It is based on ten years of research and practice in the field of organizational and community narrative and is a companion to the free e-book workingwithstories.org, which helps people use narrative techniques to help their communities and organizations. It uses questions, annotations, and links to organize and connect stories in more meaningful and useful ways than is possible in other social media applications. Other features such as safe storytelling via fictional attribution, the bridging of online and offline worlds, and fluid contribution roles are designed for the unique situation of people sharing stories for a reason.
