Digital Scaffolding

For some time now and almost without realising it, I’ve been building a digital scaffold for my memories.

Social media is one example, but I’ve barely been using this in recent years and prefer to add what little I do share to

But there are more subtle aspects. My IMDb lists hold a record of all the films I’ve watched since 2004. My (more recent) Letterboxd account also includes the date and with whom I watched the film. captures music I’ve listened to, and concerts I’ve attended are kept in All the books I’ve read are catalogued in LibraryThing, which I’ve written about before.

The more I think about it, the more scaffolding boards I discover. This is a topic I will be returning to…
