Genealogy & Technology

BURBANK – Dozens of geneabloggers attempted to bring down the Burbank Marriott’s wi-fi system by simultaneously blogging and Twittering during the “Son of Blogger” Jamfest.

Randy Seaver, pictured above (top right), was responsible for the majority of the Tweets, and was quoted as saying, “We want to see the hastag #scgs09 become a trending topic, or else!” Randy is known for stirring up unrest in the genealogy community with his blog Genea-Musings.

The geneabloggers remained quiet during the summit, however, the sound of typing was annoying for the non-bloggers in attendance. Several computer batteries were killed during the event.


DISCLAIMER: While there were, indeed, plenty of geneabloggers live-Tweeting and blogging during the summit (this one included), there was no malfeasance intended. I think.
