Time, Memory and the Web
Geolocation and mapping have gone from cute hacks of interest to geographers and direction seekers to an inextricable part of the way we view the web. But what about time? Almost every action we take or piece of content we create on the web is timestamped, but the time axis is rarely the primary organizing principle. Attention/Intention streams are related, but don’t represent a truly general view. Or maybe I’m wrong. If you’re at SXSWi and interested in talking about the issues involved in moving along, warping, annotating, correlating and interpreting events on the time axis, then comment on this post, email email@example.com or catch me on the #sxsw irc channel or on iChat.
