Forever Founder & CEO Glen Meakem appears on Extreme Genes: Family History Radio
Recently, Forever Founder & CEO Glen Meakem appeared on the Extreme Genes: Family History Radio show. Together, Glen and host, Scott Fisher, discussed a variety of topics associated with the preservation of family memories. In particular, Glen stressed the importance of prioritizing the value of family heirlooms, so that the most vital photos and documents are not inadvertently tossed out when families make difficult decisions about what to keep. Glen goes on to say that Forever adds a few important elements to the memory-keeping process. For instance, in preserving meta-data, Forever allows our users to provide meaningful context for their photos and documents. Forever members can do more than display their memories; they can tell rich and wonderful stories with them.
Later in the segment, Glen cites another innovation: in promising to convert our members' content to future file formats, Forever can ensure that precious memories are available for generations. To demonstrate the value of this process, Glen refers to the obsolete VHS tape as a frustrating example of memories that are lost. Families, according to Glen, "don't dare put their memories in the [VHS] player, because it might eat the tape."
At Forever, members trust us to convert their VHS tapes into digital video (and convert them again, later, to a future file format if necessary), so they can safely cherish their memories again.
