“Don’t miss this “Fireside Chat” with Dave Olson, an experienced public presenter who informs and entertains with a unique style including numerous visual aids, analog artifacts and interactive activities.
Dave’s presentations always inspire fresh thinking by evoking the spirit of historical luminaries remixed with anecdotes from 17+ years in web tech and travel to 30 countries.
This time around, he’ll riff on topics about future-proofing, disappearing content, the importance of archiving, media research, and documenting and publishing artifacts with an eye towards forever. Along the way will be anecdotes about Radiouserland, Samuel Peyps, Clayoquot blockades, and exploration of other forms of what we now call “social media.”
Collage “paper point” slides, including back sides containing my notes, and a few comments/annotations/quotes captured by the audience, [note: additional roundup of Internet Has a Short Memory available] ergo:
What follows is a roundup of media, reactions, comments and so on from my talk “Internet Has a Short Memory” at Social Media Camp, Victoria, BC, Canada, May 2016. Scroll the embedded curation device for all coverage.
Yesterday, I was feeling the blues hard but I got out a bunch of artifacts from recent wanders and a stack of scrapbooks I’ve been filling up over the last year and a half since the onset of my illness.
Did a lot of gluing in cutting and bindering. So much content i produce & collect!
It occurs to me that I could spend the rest of my life editing myself, but I have so many more stories to tell and contextualize.
Love the thrill of finishing another unexpected project which combines art, culture, tech, history, & renegades–especially the forgotten ones.
Digital hoarding is a term used to describe the act of hoarding material or information for a later date utilizing the space by saving, archiving or storing it in some kind of digital format.
Digital hoarding is an increasingly common phenomenon. Digital cameras, E-mail clients and hard drives make it very easy to add information to them, and this information can be stored or written in excess. Online services makes it easier to and create and store than to destroy. A system that is 5 inches wide and 200 miles deep allows for invisible hoarding, and because of this hoarding behaviors may not be easily detected or treated as easily as physical hoarding.
Electronic devices are now larger on the inside than than they are on the outside. Digital artifacts do not take up any physical space. This allows one to add more and more information to a hard drive, server or device without it getting heavier. It takes less time to capture a piece of information and store it than it takes to take that piece of information out, whether by printing, exchanging, reviewing, etc.
