Memories (on paper)

I was going through some memories in school, and I thought of the following – what’s the ratio between costs & benefits of doing:

  • A group photo at the beginning / end of the school year / work year, given directly at the opening / end of that year.
  • A photo with the participants at an event, be it low profile (a meeting in town with friends), or high profile (school banquet, Christmas party, New Year party, birthday, wedding, baptism).

To me, the cost & effort is rather low, but the benefits are large.

Also, it’s important that the memory is physical (on paper, in my hands). Sure, digital is fine, also, but physical is much better.

There are options.

Rescue-Time-Android-App

I do this:

  • RescueTime monitors pretty much every action I take, and while the data is locked in there (you need a premium account to see your own data in full details), I am confident I can/will take it out sometime in the future.
  • Last FM records every song I listen to on my profile.
  • I have a keylogger which saves every keystroke.
  • I have a clipboard utility which automatically saves the clipboard into a log file.

Why is this helpful?
