The Life of a Digital Photo (12 Oct 2004)
History is being written in a new way. It is being written by people through the big and the small events in their lives. We write history through personal Web sites, discussion boards, and the legacy of photos, taken at moments that are important to us.
Researchers at Microsoft have been working on a wide range of technologies that will help people write their personal histories through digital photography. To tell any history, it's best to start at the beginning, and move forward.
In the beginning, you buy a digital camera, take a quick look at the manual, throw it to the side, and start pushing buttons.

Many of them are almost good, with a little tweaking they'd be just fine.
