In the cross-culture life I am leading, spending my days writing about educational technology and my weekends working on family history and genealogy, I find some spots where there is overlap. I call this space, "Beyond the Horizon" and that space is filled with technology, of course. I guess this is a form of social history.
Today, I was amused, and annoyed to hear that Adobe has decided to feel the pressure of some of the online photo editing tools will provide one of their own. After being forced to use Adobe PhotoShop in one of my graduate classes, I am comforted by the fact that they at least concede that there are other applications in our known universe. I am NOT giving up my love of Picnik. Period.
I also read, on a genealogy blog, about the death of the phone book. Yes, I know genealogy is all about life and death but this notice is of great interest to me. What am I going to use for a footrest if there are no phone books? Ah, the joys of being short.
Later...btw, my phone books came today (4/16/08) tossed out the window of a car onto my driveway!
