Week in Review

Below are some noteworthy news stories and blog posts I have read in the past week that deal with my overlapping interests in Genealogy, History, Heritage, and Technology.
  • A new study suggests internet use negatively impacts our memory. Or, from a different perspective, our brains are becoming more efficient. If we know where we can look up the information, the brain doesn't waste its resources storing it. 
  •  It appears Microsoft may soon be entering the Social Networking fray as well.  (Personally, I think my Mac would revolt against me if I created a profile on a Microsoft social network, so if they do enter the fray, I will not be testing it out.)
