Never forget

Wether we realize it or not, a lot of our experiences are being digitized. Increasingly they can also be easily retrieved. A while back I wrote about this phenomenon and now Fast Company has a longish article looking at the scientific research that is being done in this area. With Gordon Bell’s MyLifeBits as the most well known example. His conclusion sums it all up...

“Still, Bell insists the trend toward total memory isn’t going away. More and more, it is happening automatically. Those tens of millions of bloggers and Flickr users–all out there recording their thoughts and pictures–have clearly decided that there’s enormous value not just in capturing those thoughts but in sharing them with the public. The choice isn’t whether you’ll join the revolution but whether you’ll embrace it.”
