Name: Susan

From: North Carolina

Bio: Internet researcher, writer, artist, web designer

Area of Expertise: Author/Editor/Journalist

Topic: Getting, Sharing Information

Headline: Dead websites

Nutshell: In the future, there will be more "dead" websites than ones that are updated on a regular basis.

Vision: The internet will be less that useful due to a plethora of "dead" websites. In other words, ones that are no longer updated, no longer current, and no longer useful. Forget about lost info. That can be backed up on books. Out-of-date info will live forever on-line.
