Calling All LDS Bloggers

Most of you are probably aware of Elder Ballard's technology talk given at BYU-Hawaii's commencement ceremony. Just in case you haven't had a chance to read it yet, I've included a link. Sometimes I forget how amazing the internet is. Just think, the invention of the internet is comparable to Gutenburg's printing press---with comperable spiritual ramifications (for good and evil). We can and should use the internet to spread the gospel. Consider this: On Monday, February 4, I was able to find an updated article about President Monson on Wikipedia just minutes after the announcement; I watched the parts of the press conference that I missed and rewatched the parts that I liked; and read several journal articles for my thesis without setting foot in the HBLL (BYU's library). What an amazing age we have been blessed to witness!

Here is Grant enjoying Scripture Scouts online. I particularly recommend the Hooray for Babies! video.

I love these pictures. You can already tell that Grant is going to be such a nerd (but he was pretty much doomed with you two as parents...)
