More changes coming to FamilySearch.org?

I think I can safely say that the answer to the question in the title of this post is yes. There seem to be major and minor changes a couple of times a week. Spotting the changes and figuring out how to do things is becoming an interesting job in itself. One of my online colleagues working on the Research Wiki provided a link to an article, "Managed Print Service Cuts Red Ink at FamilySearch." There was a very interesting statement at the end of the article that says:
FamilySearch is currently developing an app that will allow visitors to scan documents and photos directly into their online family tree without using a computer interface. And it is continuing to roll out the MPS devices. At present, the organization has deployed the printers at approximately 1,900 locations, and it will roll them out at another 550 over the next year.
 Hmm. This would be interesting. I wonder how many copies of the same photo will go online among other issues? It will be interesting to see if this prediction is accurate. The article is also interesting as it gives some idea of the huge scope of FamilySearch services through the FamilySearch Libraries and Centers.
