A while back, I wrote a post about the the nature of photography and how it's changed in the digital age. I still wonder what is going to be at the estate sales of the future in place of boxes of family photos.
Monday, when I was trying to find the blog post I wrote about my mother's death for a post on the Book of Faces, I stumbled across four or five older posts in a row that had deleted videos embedded in them. On the one hand, this makes me a little sad, given that this blog is a record of the last twelve years of my life, off and on. On the other hand, do I really want to go back and clean up 1000+ old posts when there are much better (and more fun) uses of my time?
John Green works a bit with both those ideas in this interesting video. If you don't know who he is, check out the vlogbrothers YouTube channel. It's pretty awesome.
