I didn’t post anything last night because I had misplaced my camera which made me very upset.  My niece is visiting from Florida with her 5 month old baby and my camera is full pictures of the baby.  After I saw them yesterday, I made several stops, including Lowes, so when I could not find the camera last night I was panicked!  But I found it today in my backpack.  I must have put it there when I got home yesterday, but I did not remember putting it there.

Here are today’s genres:

From the Ephemera category, some of my birthday cards for the greeting card genre:

This should look familiar for the blog genre!

The OLPC Wiki for the wiki genre:

Looking at these digital genres, I wonder what new ones will be added by next year at this time.  Tomorrow I will probably collect the rest of the digital genre and then I will list them all together so you can see if you agree or disagree with the list I found.
