    The State Archives of North Carolina will be doing #archday12. I’m not sure yet which Twitter account will be taking part, but it will either be https://twitter.com/#!/WebArchivist or https://twitter.com/#!/NCArchives. So if anyone has questions about our World War I posters or any of our other NC Digital Collections, or just questions about the Archives in general, I’ll do my best to answer them.

    I just wrote a long comment that was lost so I would like to offer up http://Www.miLifemap.com web, iphone and ipad apps for all your family memories that I built and just launched after a death in the family. A lot of intuitive and effortless features for photos, videos, diaries, + social media backup all mapped on a private timeline + an eBeneficiary to leave a read-only account to a spouse, child or loved one posthumously.
    I’d love feedback from the community and all of my digital photos, videos, and social media are backed up and it is quite powerful with the fragmented nature of analogue, web products and services and devices now vying for our attention – mi Lifemap is your sanctuary.
    I hope you find real value for your family as I have with mine!
