The following is a Plus Edition article written by and copyright by Dick Eastman.
The web is making all of the world's information accessible. Isn't that great?
It really is great, but the world is a very big place, and contemplating all of its information makes my brain hurt.
There is more information available on the web than any other single place in the world. Best of all, much of this information is updated daily, some of it hourly. Whatever information you or I seek, there is an excellent chance that we can find it on the web.
All is not perfect, however. In fact, the web’s greatest strength is also its curse. There is so much information available and so much constant updating that it is impossible to keep up-to-date with multiple interests. Just keeping abreast of developments in genealogy could require several hours every day to visit all the web sites that possibly may have new information. If you have additional interests, the problem is magnified.
Luckily, there is an easy way to reduce the mechanics of visiting multiple web sites on a regular basis. In effect, you can automatically bring the web sites to your computer, where you can look for updates quickly and easily.
