    More Videos on Personal Archiving 

    If #RootsTech has left you hungry for more video presentations on digitizing personal collections, check out the 2010 Personal Archiving Conference videos available at the Personal Archiving website.

    I viewed the presentation and slides on digitization by Eric Saund from the Palo Alto Research Center. Saund explored the demands of academic and business demands for document processing, but what I found most intriguing was Saund's revelation that he calls himself a "hobbyist" with his own personal family archive, and his conclusion that "the hobby stage brings together kindred spirits" and can drive innovation.

    Over twenty videos are available for viewing on topics including Projects, Tools, Movies, Narratives, and many more.

    The 2011 Personal Digital Archiving Conference will be held at The Internet Archive in San Francisco February 24 and 25. Thanks Bernard Kahle for mentioning this conference during your presentation this morning at RootsTech.
