"How Digital Memory is Shaping Our Future": The Long Now Lecture Series at retroTECH In-Person

Come to retroTECH at the GT Library for a group viewing of one of the Long Now Foundation’s Lecture series and enjoy the conversation it sparks. We’ll dip into the archive at longnow.org and find a talk that connects with retroTECH’s research concern -- how our lives shape technology, and are shaped by it, over time – and follow that with an open discussion guided by a Georgia Tech librarian, archivist, or faculty member.

This month's video is "How Digital Memory is Shaping Our Future." Historian Abby Smith Rumsey, speaking in 2016, discussed the relationship between human memory and the technologies we create to store cultural memories.

retroTECH’s Long Now Lecture Series is part of our charge to create the future by exploring and preserving our technological pasts.
