In a follow-up to my post Is Privacy a Generational Thing? Patrick Lambe over at Green Chameleon has pointed me in the direction of a piece in The New Yorker. It’s a about a retired Microsoft engineer who has been digitising his life since 1998. As Patrick says:
“The project, sponsored by Microsoft, raises all sorts of issues around memory (the stuff you use to prompt recall of specific events tends to suppress memory of adjacent events), navigation of content, and sensemaking. And of course, long term preservation of digital archives across different content standards and platforms, not to mention the navigation and metadata continuity.”
Fab article, go check it out. Thanks Patrick!
