The Promise And Peril Of The Internet Within Mormonism The Internet presents considerable promise and peril within Mormonism. Over the past fifteen years, LDS-themed web sites, forums, blogs, podcasts, and wikis have emerged, each technology developing a unique set of cultural and social implications for Latter-day Saints. In 2006, new technologies and services such as YouTube.com (free online video), Facebook/MySpace (Social Networking), Del.icio.us (social tagging), Digg.com (peer production news), and Flickr (photos) are emerging, each presenting additional opportunities and challenges. This presentation is a multimedia “year in review” of Mormonism on the Internet, along with a sneak preview of what is to come in 2007, and beyond. Please bring your questions and ideas about these technologies and their possibilities!
