Vanishing Yearbooks

There was a good, but sad article in the Houston Chronicle yesterday about how Facebook and Myspace are  killing yearbooks.  But I think it is more that students feel they can make their own memories.  Cameras used to be expensive, so was film and developing.  Now digital cameras are relatively cheap and – well that’s it they are cheap.  Most students have one.  They take pictures of their own friends and – yes the internet hurts too because they can store photos online at places like social sites or Flickr, etc.  So, I think it is the digital camera more than the web sites that are killing yearbooks.
