    "the cloud" (very safe storage on the internet)

Archiving - not just for museums, this is personal archiving!

How often do you look at photos buried in boxes in the attic? When is the last time you read an old letter or diary? Maybe you wanted to, but the thought of digging through boxes and trying to find the thing you're looking for makes you give up before you even start.

Wouldn't it be wonderful to have every photo, letter and memento at your fingertips whenever you want, easy to browse, easy to search, and easy to share with others?


I'll help you accomplish that. My name is Doug Rogers, and preserving memories and creating life narratives has been a passion of mine for decades.
