Doc Searls has spent the last few days with his mother in the hospital. While he was back in North Carolina he also went through and found old photographs from his parents place and scanned them into his laptop. You can see the galleries he’s starting to put together that chronicle his mother’s life here. This really reminds me how much taking photos now and chronicling the places we go and the things we do can have impact well beyond the enjoyment we get out of them ourselves. Years from now, these same pictures will tell their own stories to anyone who sees them, and our websites will do the same for the next generation.
