Report from Italia - On Forgetting

Information taken out of context can be dangerous. Memory is important and interesting but SO IS FORGETTING.

We need to forget certain things to survive and stay together. What will happen if everything is tracked and recorded. How will we be able to forget? Will the owners and administrators of the data allow us to forget?

For example, we have social and cultural practices (expectations and norms) in place that accomodate comments MADE IN PASSING ... what if certain comments are not allowed to pass?
