Data/Memory/Mayer-Schönberger/Morozov: Thesis: we need technologies that allow us to set automatic expiration dates for published content. (1) MorozovVsMayer-Schönberger: Problem: when is forgetting appropriate and when not? Deletion is also not immediately forgetting. In some circumstances, forgiveness may be more morally appropriate than forgetting. In such technological form, solutionism (see Terminology/Morozov) deprives us of important considerations about what is appropriate in every situation and what is not.
