Tech Tuesday: Looking for a Good Website on Copyright Term?

  Are you looking for a good handout on copyright term? Turns out Cornell has a nice chart posted on their website: http://copyright.cornell.edu/resources/publicdomain.cfm. The chart offers a brief summary of the law - and when items under it should fall into the public domain. It makes for a solid reference.

Sorting Saturday (okay, Sunday): How do you decide what to keep?

 I'm in the midst of a massive paper sorting binge. And I'm gasp throwing things out. I finally reached a decision: christmas letters written by family friends do not belong in my save pile. I have just tons of paper...
   So what are your rules for what to keep?
   These are mine thus far. Please feel free to add your suggestions!

1. Does it directly relate to a family memory? I save menus and brochures from trips/. Grad plan at some point - scapbooking. 
2. Does it directly relate to an ancestor? Is it an article about my ancestor? 
3. Is it otherwise useful?
