Come to the Library's third-floor Crosland Tower retroTECH lab Tuesday, Sept. 3 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for a group viewing of one of the Long Now Foundation’s lecture series and enjoy the conversation it sparks. 

This month's video is "How Digital Memory is Shaping Our Future." Historian Abby Smith Rumsey, speaking in 2016, discussed the relationship between human memory and the technologies we create to store cultural memories.

retroTECH’s Long Now Lecture Series is part of our charge to create the future by exploring and preserving our technological pasts. Each month we’ll dip into the archive at longnow.org and find a talk that connects with retroTECH’s research concern -- how our lives shape technology, and are shaped by it, over time – and follow that with an open discussion guided by a Georgia Tech librarian, archivist, or faculty member.
