The Future of Genealogy Software

I have been following Dick Eastman's blog, "Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter" for a long time. I have always found Dick to be at the cutting edge of what is going on in the world of family history as it relates to the digital age. He was once an IT guy and it shows. 

He recently published a post entitled The Future of Genealogy Software that I think will be of interest to anyone using a family tree program (such as Family Tree Maker). He makes some very good observations, and some well-thought out predictions, about where computing is going and why we need to rethink how we do things.

Windows PCs and iOS systems such as MacBooks are probably on their way out. Dick is not the first IT guru to write about this. The next ten years are going to see a HUGE change in how we use computers.
