A fascinating and poignant Twitter thread from Marcin Wichary, about user interfaces that accidentally collect memories, and tell a story about the past.
Fascinated by UIs that accidentally amass memories. One of them is the wi-fi “preferred networks” pane – unexpected reminders of business trips, vacations, accidental detours, once frequented and now closed cafés. pic.twitter.com/r137dZI0r8— Marcin Wichary (@mwichary) 14 May 2018
I wonder what I would see if I fired up any of the old social apps I don’t use any more, like Adium, or Textual.
Via this ongoing Metafilter post with more funny and sad stories of accidental memories.
