Self-Publishing Meets Today's Seniors

Two weekends ago I came across an interesting article detailing how today's tech savvy seniors are turning to self-publishing as a means of passing on their stories and values. According to the article, of the 1.1 million users of the self-publishing site Lulu.com, 17 percent are seniors. Passing on wisdom is not new among the world's elders, but the availability of inexpensive technology allows them to take on an entirely new approach.

Thinking back to my middle school years I remember doing a family tree project and recording my grandparents voices on tape. Oh how times have changed. I'd love to have a book from my elders. How about you?
