For All Posterity

Do you use Twitter?  No?  Then you are missing out on the opportunity to write words that will be saved for all time.  In April of this year, the Library of Congress decided to save every tweet that has been twittered/tweeted since the beginning of Twitter.  (Now THAT is something I'd like to hear you say three times fast.  ;))  It was determined that this will be a great way to preserve the culture, so the LoC will archive every word written via Twitter.  AS if ANYONE wants to remember me going 'Boo, hiss' over tonight's Chicago winning the Cup.  Here is the story from Twitter, if you would like to read more.

This reminds me of that library scene in the remake of the 'Time Machine' film.
It's bizarre to imagine that the internet has the capacity to retain information for who knows how long!

I guess we all can be remembered forever, regardless of whether we do anything worthwhile enough to warrant being remembered. And it IS a bizarre feeling...
