Through the power of Twitter, a local entrepreneur is hoping that his invitation gets noticed.

Founded in 1990, Mr. Goldstone’s company is regularly recognized for its grassroots, pro-consumer advocacy campaigns and constant reinventing of its business to improve the economy, create jobs and support the community. [See “In the News” at for more background].

Dear friends,

You may have known that over the past seven months, “CBS News Sunday Morning” was producing a segment profiling how to preserve your photo and other analog memories.

The CBS News Sunday Morning” TV cover story
by reporter, author and NY Times tech columnist, David Pogue discussed “data rot–the tendency of new technologies to abandon recording and computer formats faster every year, leaving more and more audio, video and computer files behind.”

“Data Rot Sooner or later, it affects every audio recording, every video recording and computer file. Contributor David Pogue looks at what happens when technological progress leaves your most precious memories and recordings behind. Remember when you replaced that old film camera with that brand new videotape camera to record the treasured moments of your life? Well, where are they now? Does that camera still work? How about that old VCR? Have you graduated to DVDs yet? It’s funny how technology can promise us the world and then take it all away with the next generation of contraptions. Sunday Morning contributor and New York Times technology reporter David Pogue will explain how we can preserve our precious memories in our Sunday Morning Cover Story.”
