Guys, you all need to read this. It is an incredibly sad snapshot of losing a loved one to cancer. But it also opens up a conversation on how technology, more specifically email and Gchat, affect communication and memory in our age of modern communication. Older generations had handwritten letters and postcards to remember loved ones; this woman has archived Gchat conversations.
It’s much more about this couple’s particular relationship and a grieving woman’s sense of loss, but I think it can really speak to the positive side of technology that we (mostly) take for granted.
