Too Drunk To Dream

…ain’t no drinking when the bottle’s dry…

Today’s Obsession: Geni.com

I just joined another networking site, but it’s not a Facebook/Twitter/last.fm type of thing. It’s a GENEOLOGY type of thing. I didn’t think I was gonna like it, but I’ve spent the afternoon building my family tree and I’m loving it.

The site is called Geni.com, and I’m addicted.

You add your relatives names and relationships, and that’s when things get interesting….then come email addresses, photos, locations, videos, and every other conceivable trinket or fact or nugget of information about everyone in your family. Since you’re adding some email addresses of family members (and giving permission to politely email the person), other family members get involved and create a virtual 3D image of your family tree, adding photos and info and missing pieces of the genetic puzzle. One thing I’ve realized is that my memory has gone to shit!
