MEM: Making Everlasting Memories

"Making Everlasting Memories® (MeM) helps families share and archive the stories of their lives. Whether documenting a child’s first steps or honoring the memory of a loved one passed, MeM publishes the memories, treasured photographs and loving thoughts that capture life’s most cherished moments."

The market around personal digital archives will become bigger and bigger soon, I will say. But it will be very interesting to see how and which direction it will grow.
