I Just Finished Creating a World-wide Tour of the LDS Temples

I’ve been working on the infrastructure for this for a long time.  There are many cool things in the works, but this is as cool as I dare to get for now.

For those of you who have sort of a fast internet connection, here is where you can fly to all these beautiful LDS Temples. (Free of course!)

Want to get your stuff on the earth so that wandering pilgrims can check out your stuff?  Be an alpha user. Make 3-D tourness happen on this earth.

The New Rules of Marketing and PR: How to Use News Releases, Blogs, Podcasting, Viral Marketing, & Online Media to Reach Buyers DirectlyThe New Rules of Marketing and PR: How to Use News Releases, Blogs, Podcasting, Viral Marketing, & Online Media to Reach Buyers Directly by David Meerman Scott

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a great read for understanding the new rules of marketing today — use the internet.

It is important to have a hard copy of this book because of all the tips and web sites that it mentions. But I would also like to listen to this book because I didn’t have time to sit down and read all of it.

Also, my experience is that if you are marketing to the local community — besides the internet, put ads on TV during the local news. All the other time slots seem to be a waste.

RootsTech 2012

Yesterday I drove a couple of miles from my home to RootsTech 2012, in downtown, Salt Lake City, Utah.  What an amazing experience.

Family history has a lot of meaning for me. We are taught by the prophets that we need to help our ancestors receive the saving ordinances such as baptism.  Also we learn who we are when we find out where our family has been.

Yesterday I got to meet lots of people who want to help me learn about my precious long-lost ancestors. I talked with fellow programmers like the lady at Magi Census. We shared a few GEDCOM parsing war stories. (Where else could I do that?)

Osama bin Laden Creep Finally Dead

I am so sick of seeing his face. His holier-than-thou attitude masked the fact that he was another Hitler: A cold-blooded mass murderer. He hi-jacked the American Jets; he tried to hi-jack the Muslim Religion.

Christ has said that his Kingdom will not come by the sword. Daniel saw God’s kingdom in the last days, and it comes as a stone rolling down a mountain, “Without hands,” which means without the sword, without coercion.

Misguided people like bin Laden believe they are God’s self-appointed enforcers of their sick brand of religion. They think they are God’s pure people, and the rest of us “infidels” need to be given a few chances to convert to Islaam before they blow us up.

I know a few Muslims. They seem to be amazing, good, peaceful people. I hope they do their part in stopping the hi-jacking of their religion. I hope Muslims everywhere are applauding the death of Osama.
