Here I am, always talking about the difference betwen storage and memory, about how the storage is binary, on or off. About how memory is blur and smudge, and that's what makes us human. That the difference between a well-recorded life and a well-lived one is the binary nature of the recording, that everything is either there or not there. Whereas we live, as a rule, between these two poles.
As it turns out, so does data. At least the data on the eBay'd hard drives that Simson Garfinkel extracts data from.Posted by kevin slavin at March 23, 2004 07:15 PM
