My trip to Alaska this past summer was full of learning and adventure. While I was there, I made the conscious effort NOT to record anything in any media format. No photos, no video, no audio recording. OK, so I took this photo, but that was basically it.
I did this as an experiment of sorts to see how/if my memories of the experiences that I had will last without the aid of what my friend Ryon calls “our collective prosthetic brain”.
Will my memories fade without the omnipresent assistance from Facebook and Flikr, or will they become stronger without the visual aid? It’s been about a month since I have been back in Oakland. So far, most memories are still quite vivid.
