Memory Dump

Part of the reason why I keep a journal is as an off-board archive of fragments of my head. With luck it'll someday help serve as a checksum to verify that my identity is intact and has survived the cryosuspension/reanimation process. Or at least as a tiny legacy that I once existed. Or maybe just as reminders of where I was, what I was thinking, and what I was doing at any given time.

Twitter (which is where most of my online presence is these days) would actually serve better as a day to day chronicle of my sometimes-not-entirely-mundane life, except that I'm uncertain of its permanence. If I can't even read my own tweets from 2 years ago then it's not really serving that function well.

So LJ it is, even though I don't post here regularly.

There are entire worlds in my head, just as there are in yours. It's a tragedy that brains are such fragile and lossy storage devices. So from time to time I'm going to make a deliberate effort to record little bits of events as I remember them. I expect most of them to be rather boring to anyone but me, and I may end up locking them rather than embarrassing myself with rambling posts about what I did as a child. Even if I don't lock them, by all means, feel free to skip 'em! (Seriously)

I'll tag with "Memory Dump" for easy avoidance.
