Jeffrey Rosen discusses "a challenge that, in big and small ways, is confronting millions of people around the globe: how best to live our lives in a world where the Internet records everything and forgets nothing — where every online photo, status update, Twitter post and blog entry by and about us can be stored forever."

Rosen also mentions in passing that "the Library of Congress recently announced that it will be acquiring — and permanently storing — the entire archive of public Twitter posts since 2006."
