The librarians have done it. The knitters have done it. Now it's time for the genealogists to do it.
I was just reading James Tanner's blogpost "Who do they think we are?" In it, he explains why people give blank stares when someone tells them they are a genealogist. He says, "Part of the reason, I am sure for the reaction to genealogy stems from the common viewpoint that the whole subject is the purview of slightly (or more than slightly) balmy older people who have failed at shuffleboard."
Folks, it's time for genealogists to get hip.
The librarians did it first.
We've seen librarians do Lady Gaga

Even the knitters are getting hip with their graffiti bombing activities.
So genealogists, I challenge you!
What you are you going to do to show the world that genealogists are hip?
Hmmm...maybe I'll even come up with a prize for the best submission. I'll be back later with a prize and a deadline.
