This is a most amazing visual journey through newspaper making in the 1970's and 1980's. It worth a read by adults and you could try showing it to your students. I'm not sure that they will be able to comprehend this history, but do try!
p.s. This is a photo of a reporter using rubber cement to glue pages together. Remember rubber cement balls?
Do you ever need to share a few photos (or a bunch) with people and don't know how to do it? The website http://min.us should cure what ails you. Just drag pictures onto the site, grab the link, and send off to someone. Genius.
The website Momversation has a video discussing different moms' positions on posting their children's photos online. It is certainly a personal choice, but it is great to hear a diversity of positions on the topic.
I thought the comment on the page by Baumgak about our individual photos being a tiny speck in the enormous Internet a helpful metaphor.
Do you post your kids' photos online? Why or why not?
