Scrapbook Solution
10/1/2000 lets you design, save and share your memories — digitally.
If you treasure family memorabilia with Scrooge-like tenacity, has a unique, safe way to preserve and share your memories online.

Launched in April, <> lets you click to create a multimedia scrapbook. The site gives step-by-step instructions for digitizing and uploading images and designing colorful pages in your custom SketchBook. Then relatives and friends can go online and view at their leisure, without waiting for the family reunion.

You can organize, save and share individual photos, documents, sound bites and video clips on Lifesketch. com's secure, backed-up server. Other family members and friends can search what you've saved and even tailor their own SketchBooks to their liking. "We tried to combine the better elements out there — traditional scrapbooking, online photo hosting and packaged software programs," says founder Michael Smith.
