Improving Reality 2012 : Joanne Mcneil

"Google privileges the relevant over the new — and our search habits on the web work the same. Why might I have guessed that after sitting there abandoned for thirty years, it would be gone just as I had the chance to see it? I made the mistake the people using that Haiti image had done — confused the past for the present.

I went out anyway, to see for myself, see the place in context, see if there was anything left. I stood there looking at my iPhone with Google Earth satellites telling me I should be in the middle of this fantastic place. But I was only standing in the pieces of what used to be.

The web has changed the way we think of time. We see examples of contemporary culture remixing the past, present, and future in celebrity holograms, instagram filters, WW2 in real time tweets."

"should attempt to preserve...things that have no fans, enthusiasts, one to care for them...artifacts people find dumb, stupid, worthless, insignificant...stuff that won't be saved, and will therefore be of prime interest in 100 years."
