[Smarter Than You Think]
In Chapter 2 "We, the Memorious" of Smarter Than You Think, Clive Thompson discusses the concept of memory. He writes about how memories are formed, how we extract what we remember, and how technology relates to this process.
Thompson writes “The way machines will become integrated into our remembering is likely to be in smaller, less intrusive bursts. In fact, when it comes to finding meaning in our digital memories, less may be more” (37).
What did you gain from Thompson’s discussion of memory in this chapter? What made that idea particularly useful?
