I was cleaning my room the other day and going through pics, letters, papers, etc.. they are old and taking a lot of space but have special memories.. then it crossed my mind that isn’t it better that we have a virtual memory/storage? Which I think our kids and next generations will have only virtual storage.
When I was in school and even after school, was exchanging letters and pictures with friends, in Jordan and outside Jordan.. special people and friends from Lebanon, Australia, Germany, USA, etc. I smellthe letters, read the words, look at pictures and laugh 🙂
But again, next generations won’t have all this, all letters are emails and pictures are all digital, the books are e-books.. even the CV’s are online now, the photo frames are digital, seems like everything has been E’d and digitized lately.. Almost every thing is online in a “virtual” storage, rather than my old good boxes..
is it good? is it bad? I think it’s good. I enjoy papers, reading real books, real pictures, real frames but still love the flexibility that technology offers. We do not have to have extra space everywhere for our old stuff that still mean to us and we do need to keep them but sometimes we don’t look at them and other times we hardly find a space for them.
Everything has its good and bad.. but we like it or not, the whole world is going digital already.
