|A thousand photos, fifty hours of video, and your child is only ten? Will they even care when they are older? How will they find anything?||You pass away. Your kids are cleaning out the house. They give the PC a cursory look but see there is a 160GB hard drive full of literally thousands of files called names like IMG_3360.JPG. What will happen?||You are the last surviving person to have worked on a big project. What if someone finally writes a history of it after you have died?|
|Children are so restless and hard to impress these days. Especially, they need pictures not just words. When your grandchildren finally ask about your life, how long will they sit still while you tell stories?||You moved to another country. You always regretted your parents couldn't be there to see the kids grow up. Now you've got all these photos on CD but your folks aren't interested in pictures on computers. What if you sent them a book?||Fifty years from now, excited children find a CD marked "family holiday 1998". Can they find something to view it with? Will it still be readable?|

"It was what they used to call a 'blog'. It is gone now"
|"Daddy Daddy come and look. See what I have found. A little ways away from here, while digging in the ground"
Come away Melinda
|"Burned to the ground. We've lost everything"
"Not everything. All the family photos and documents are on a server in Utah"
