I Remember Now...
Have you ever thought about the way that objects can store memories? Sure, our contemporary world is dominated by electronic memory, and paper memory, there are lots of other ways to store information for future generations. Italian writer and historian Umberto Eco has given a really interesting dissertation on the subject. He discusses the difference between literary and geographic memory, and why it is important to preserve facilities for each in our modern world. It's pretty academic, but it could be interesting to anyone developing designs which work in conjunction with long-lived information, like database kiosks and new products to help people interact with their stored images and files.
