archives

read about this lecture at IASPIS.
reminded me of one of the romanian archivers.
and of mika taanila's "future is not what it used to be".
"Today Kurenniemi is obsessively devoted to preserving his own consciousness. He continually records an audio diary, shoots video, and takes at least 20,000 photographs a year. This accumulating mass of documentation is then regularly fed into a computer, storing the record of his existence, his mind and consciousness in digital bytes, thus creating a reconstruction of his life, a "virtual persona," to be premiered in July, 2048."
