The psychology of time and the paradox of how impulsivity and self-control mediate our capacity for presence (

What contributes to this perception of fullness, Wittmann notes, is the storage of memory — the more memories we encode in a given period of time, the longer and fuller it will appear. But this raises an intriguing question about what we may be relinquishing as we increasingly outsource our memory to photographs stored in our disembodied digital memory. We vacate the moment in order to document it (and share that record), then end up remembering the photograph rather than the experience itself. Four decades before smartphones and Instagram, Italo Calvino captured this with brilliant poignancy in contemplating photography and the art of presence: “The life that you live in order to photograph it is already, at the outset, a commemoration of itself.” This compulsive commemoration consumes a great deal of our lives today and sustains entire business models.

hosting life bits as a means against this.. losing ourselves because of the feeling of having to document ourselves.. we simply live.. and use tech to leave the trail

wrote more about this at bottom of api page (less about making a trail.. that we may/may not ever use/need.. more about freeing us from spending our days focusing on making trails/how to’s.. freeing us from looking for them from others.. et al)



socially beneficial use of the data stream our online meanderings leave behind,

as opposed to current use to advertise to us?I could get behind that.
