digital paradoxes

the paradox of the digital age, as it is being termed exposes a number of facts that may have us thinking about what we really do when we sit in front of a computer.

a few things to consider/question are:
  • easy to create make millions of files now
  • much harder to access them later
  • what do we really consider important digital items
  • only way to keep digital things is to constantly manage them
  • is that a valid use of our own time and headspace
  • the need to look to history - such as the papryus scrolls (which were hand copied every now and then)
