Life through the screen

Life through the screen

I am not really sure when it happened, but all of a sudden we seem to living life through the screen. I am not saying this is a bad thing, nor is it a good thing, it just is what we (and possibly you) do. Documenting out lives through photos, tweets, status updates and sms, this is the 21st century.

Is it really that different?

I would argue that people have been tracking their lives as long as there have been tools to do so. From writing journals to making photo albums to what we do now, we have always wanted to document our experiences. Our brains are hardwired to forget trivial information and experiences, but that doesn’t mean that we want to forget them. 

This is to remembering (or documenting) the trivial, and not so trivial experiences.
