How to be Free: Proustian Memory and The Palest Ink «
"I often wonder if we should build some kind of forgetting into our systems and archives, so ways of being expand rather than contract.… allowed you to choose the length of time before your data would be deleted. This seems not only sensible, but desirable. As Heidegger said, in Being and Time, “Forgetting is not nothing, nor is it just a failure to remember; it is rather a ‘positive’ ecstatic mode of one’s having been, a mode with a character of its own.” Proustian memory, not the palest ink, should be the ideal we are building into our technology; not what memory recalls, but what it evokes. The palest ink tells us what we’ve done or where we’ve been, but not who we are.

If we are not given the chance to forget, we are also not given the chance to recover our memories, to alter them with time, perspective, and wisdom. Forgetting, we can be ourselves beyond what the past has told us we are, we can evolve. That is the possibility we want from the future."

Actually, it’s eleven eyes > Robin Sloan
"Could 9eyes be any more sub­lime? It’s a per­fect project, and a per­fect piece of art, for the year 2010. Here’s why: It deals with the enor­mity of the inter­net not by lament­ing that we’re adrift in a sea of data, etc. etc. (that’s such a bor­ing response) but by using it—by tak­ing some­thing as mind-​​bogglingly mas­sive as the Google Street View data­base and rec­og­niz­ing it, rightly, as a tool, in the same way that oil paint is a tool—and then doing some­thing uniquely human with it. And that’s a big deal."
