New Technologies and Dimensions of Genealogy

First it's good to see new members showing up to learn more about Genedocs! Thank you all!

As I completed submission of my Rootstech

Developers Challenge, I pondered what technologies are unfolding that will shape the future of our research, storage and preservation, and sharing of our precious trees...

There are many ways to view dimensions of genealogy as the image below portrays:

What new dimensions lay around the corner and via what new technologies?
Mostly we seek new ways to quickly sift information be it on the web, in other databases, or in paper archives waiting to be digitized. I think we all want a program or app that could sift like a burglar through every household's stacks of photos and albums sending us e-mailed hits for any of our relatives and an address to seek them out at;-)

Without busting down all of privacy's doors, however, we can only try to keep up with real and safer technologies and dimensions as they unfold while time presses on. Fingers crossed for new cousins and new information and imagery!
