Head in the Cloud

The Problem with Digital Memories

There’s something profoundly different about the ways we remember and forget in the age of the internet. With computers, iPhones and apps constantly to hand to record not only facts, but our own memories, we are losing our powers of recall and our pasts are being reshaped by technology.

This increased reliance on technology raises serious questions about the way we live and the way we perceive ourselves: are we less attentive to our experiences because we know that computers will record them for us? Are we less curious about new information? Is the act of remembering becoming automated?

In lucid, unfussy prose, Head in the Cloud asks challenging and important questions about remembering and forgetting in the digital age.
