REMcloud Opens Online Field of Dreams

Some people dream of starting the next Twitter. Kim Muhota hopes to start a Twitter of dreams.

He is the founder and chief executive of REMcloud, a startup that on Tuesday plans to formally launch a would-be social network based around stories people experience while they sleep. Like Twitter, users of the site post snatches of text, in this case brief accounts of what they dreamed.

The site, among other things, responds with an automated interpretation of each dream, based on the analysis of individual keywords in the text. That information comes from existing databases offered by Web companies, Muhota says. (Existing sites that focus on dream interpretation include Dream Central, DreamForth and Dreamanity).

A more unusual element of REMcloud, Muhota says, will be the interactions people have over dreams. Friends of a user, for example, can rate dreams the user posts or post their own interpretations of them. (Dreams can be posted publicly or limited to a circle of followers, Muhota says).

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest. These posts are explicitly labeled, so it’s clear that the content comes from other websites, and for clarity’s sake, all outside posts run against a pink background.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
