I was at a panel tonight at the Museum of Science, part of their “When Science Meets Art” series. Tonight’s topic was “The Art of Living a Second Life.” John Craig Freeman, an artist in Second Life, made one comment that really stuck with me: “The internet is a prosthetic memory.”

“The internet is a prosthetic memory.” How true. A mundane example: the other week I was trying to figure out how to do some obscure technical thing, and eventually decided to Google for an answer. The top hit was a post on my own blog from 9 months ago that explained exactly how to do it.
