Well, I find it really interesting to learn more about the differences between blogs, wikis, the web, databases, etc. Really fascinating technology is coming at us, faster and faster, and it is wonderful to live in an age where I can be a part of it. It is funny to think about the future of these technologies, and the fact that very soon, people might start a Family Wiki to post thoughts about what they've done together, what's coming up next, whose scheduled for what, and further into the future, as a way to keep track of family happenings and achievements.... wouldn't it be cool for the folks in the future who might be looking into geneology, to stumble across their own Family Wiki??? Especially if it had posts from others who knew them, and the birth and death dates of all relatives, with a neat little family tree... okay, have I just come up with the latest marketable use of wikis? :)
readingit, signing off!

  1. I have also been thinking about the genealogical possibilities of wikis. I'm toying with the idea of setting up a family scrapbook wiki, where my relatives (who don't live in the same city as I do), could contribute their own profiles, anecdotes, etc.
