Week In Review

Below are some highlights from news stories and blog posts I have read in the past week that deal with my overlapping interests in Genealogy, History, Heritage, and Technology.
Technology and Social Networks
  • Melissa Mannon at ArchivesInfo discusses The Value and Pitfall of Tagging Tweets.  Her discussion of the confusion that can be generated due to lack of uniformity in hashtags reminded me of a local controversy when several St. Louisan Twitter users got upset because some Twitter users in Lebanon were using #stl to refer to the Special Tribunal for Lebanon.  Today, both uses co-exist, and there is international tolerance.
