I mentioned to Chad a super-interesting group in Microsoft recently and he highly recommended the book Future of Memories: Sharing Digital Photos; by Dane Howard. Ends up MSLibrary has a copy so it’s on the way to my building! MSLibrary – another great benefit of working at Microsoft.

When I think of a hard-disk crash at home right now it scares the bejeezus out of me to think what I could lose, especially those early pictures from my first Kodak digital camera. It makes me think of wiring stuff up to S3, let alone burning (and hopefully not losing) a stack of DVDs.

But that’s just archiving. Organizing, coalescing, building, linking, sharing… hard stuff with wild rewards.

I look forward to Dane’s book. Seems to be the right book at the right time.
