Yesterday was busy and productive. In the morning we held an LDSMedia.com meeting with Deseret Book. We have a great partnership with them. The new LDSMedia.com web site is coming along nicely. By next week it will be nearly ready for prime time. We've added some free clip art and are making it possible for our content acquisition team to identify and index great LDS audio and video content anywhere on the web and easily include it in our search results. Our goal here is to launch the "LDS Google," with instant access to all content (and all content types) of interest to Latter-Day Saints. (There are about 12 million LDS/Mormons in the world.) Actually, it's won't really be the LDS Google because we aren't planning to index tons of web sites, just the ones that have the best and richest LDS content.

Alan is one of the pioneers of the computer industry, having worked at Xerox Park from 1970-1980, then Atari, Disney, and HP. He got a Ph.D. from the University of Utah in computer science.
