The Internet and Web 2.0

It's hard for me to keep up with all of the latest technology and trends - I try to read all of the print magazines but I don't read the online commercial magazines regularly. I guess I should!

Miriam Midkiff has an excellent summary of the Eastern Washington Genealogical Society seminar which featured Halvor Moorshead, the publisher of Family Chronicles (print) and Internet Genealogy (digital) magazines.

Halvor made four presentations:

1) The Internet 2007: What's New and What's Coming;

2) Researching Old Newspapers Online: Your Ancestor's 15 Minutes of Fame;

3) Web 2.0: New Uses of the Internet for Genealogical Research;

4) Dating Old Photographs.

His lecture notes and several magazine articles (not all by his authorship) that back up his material are here.

I found all of the magazine articles listed very interesting - especially the Web 2.0 articles.

Thanks to Miriam for the link, and to Halvor for posting the notes and articles.
