Two thoughts: popularity of genealogy as a business possibility

DearREADERS,
Thanks to David Pugmire, RootsTech Developer Challenge coordinator provided two main stream media outlet links with insights about the genealogy "category" as a business possibility.

30 May 2014 How Genealogy Became Almost as Popular as Porn Time Magazine post by Gregory Rodriguez, who writes "... genealogy is the second most popular hobby in the U.S. after gardening, according to ABC News, and the second most visited category of websites, after pornography."

David explains "This week a news article appeared on Forbes.com highlighting the liquidity and growth of the family history/genealogy consumer industry (http://www.forbes.com/sites/amyanderson/2014/11/23/opportunity-is-about-to-knock-so-get-ready-to-open-your-door/). Amy Reese Anderson (author) is an investor who had the largest liquidity event ever in Utah’s history."
