Twitterstories and memory

by Laurent François

Yesterday, I browsed 2011 year in tweets thanks to Twitterstories. Some conclusions:

  • I had already forgotten 70% of what’s happened according to this tool; how will historians do to include our social statements in 50 years?
  • US and French version are exactly the same: what does it mean in terms of diplomacy? Is it the end of local stories, is it the beginning of a “global” (thus not universal) history?

Anyway, we can be optimistic: history and curation are finally at stake; data become information. You can read more on memory @  Olivier’s.
