I’m using a service called imemories™ to digitize a bunch of old family pictures. Packing the pictures carefully into to shipping pre-paid box that shouts iMEMORIES™ on its side, I feel the future as the present. I look at each picture and try and remember it, in case it gets lost (imemories™ swears not a single picture has EVER been lost.) Some of the pictures are so special that I take a picture of them with my phone so that at least they’ll be there. I look at the picture of the picture on my phone and try and remember the moment, a family trip to Baltimore or DC? But it’s lost somewhere, it’s already in the imemories™ box, it’s been shipped to Indiana, to the cloud, to the past, to the future, it’s on an USB on its way to me yesterday.
