This is the dilemma of being a cyborg: It???s not just that everything we once committed to memory we now store externally on devices that crash or become obsolete or are rendered temporarily inaccessible due to lack of coverage. And it???s not that we spend a lot of time storing, organizing, pruning and maintaining our access to it all. It???s that we???re collectively engaged in a mass conversion of what we used to call, variously, records, accounts, entries, archives, registers, collections, keepsakes, catalogs, testimonies and memories into, simply, data.The Dilemma of Being a Cyborg – NYTimes.com
