Pittsburgh, PA, United States, 2010/08/26 - Following hot on the heels of summer blockbuster Inception, comes the beta release of DreamPaw.com, an online dream sharing service - Dreampaw.com.
Despite the timing, DreamPaw was conceived of independently of Inception, the famous movie; by a trio of web developers, and self-proclaimed dreamers. Taking a more real-world stance on dreams, they believe in the dream state as a source of raw inspiration which make minds great. So many of humanities greatest ideas – the sewing machine, organic chemistry, Beatles songs – are attributed to dreams, what if something like the cure to cancer is just a dream away?
DreamPaw channels the essence of social networking towards creating what is called the Dreamstream, an aggregation of all dreams posted. Allowing users to share and read dreams, whether anonymously or via personalized accounts, DreamPaw also offers features such as the ability to vote for dreams and following your friend’s dreams.
The founders saw a unique opportunity to encourage people to be more conscious of dreams by building a community of dreamers. “Our vision is to inspire others to dream and, in turn, for the world to be inspired by their dreams,” blogs Ricky Tan, one of three founders.
Although a fluid and user friendly interface suggests otherwise, DreamPaw is still under rapid development. “We could not be more excited about the strides we have made in such a short period of time - the plan behind beta testing with a wide audience is to receive feedback so that we can best tailor future versions of DreamPaw.”

Every person spends 2492 hours every year sleeping. We spend 20% of that time dreaming. How different would the world be if, together, we put that time to good use?
The DreamPaw team (dreampaw.com) believes in the power of logging and sharing dreams to harness the untapped potential of our subconscious minds. This is not some new-agey fad, dreaming has been around since the brain has evolved to carry out complex thought - even dogs dream their twitchy pawed, gentle wuffing, dreams.
