"Before you can recall, you must forget"and it just stuck in my mind. I suddenly realised it makes sense: recall presupposes that the item being "remembered" has disappeared from your immediate/surface/short-term memory - otherwise recall would not be required. Memory is dependent upon and defined by, forgetting - which means maybe we've been getting it all wrong by focusing on recall. Maybe we should be examining the process of forgetting, not as the loss of information, but the transfer of information from one type of memory to another. The more efficiently you manage the process of transfering immediate memory to enduring memory, the easier the process of recall subsequently. And since we can only hold 7 items in short-term memory, it makes sense to keep items moving out of that short-term memory as quickly as possible, and to consciously manage that process (rather than just "letting it happen") - in other words, the better you forget, the better you remember. Just as we view recall as an active process, a conscious effort, forgetting should also be an active choice, rather than a passive process.

What does the industry jargon "infrastructures" really mean? What do we actualize? Anything and everything, regardless of reconditeness!"
Microsoft, ladies and gentlemen, is a cheap whore. She lives on the fringes of the law, but there’s no getting rid of her because she fulfils a certain need in our society. People want what she is selling.
There’s a certain painted-on mystique to her, of course. We’ve all been indoctrinated with the propaganda, the hooker with the heart of gold, the disturbingly wide-mouthed Pretty Woman. When you find her, though, beneath the paint she’s really quite plain. You take what you need from her, but reluctantly and because you have no alternative. You get what you want, but she is almost peripheral to the act.
Apple is a lover."
Linux (on the desktop, at least) is the psychotic girlfriend.
She seems exciting at first and you pour an enormous amount of energy into the relationship, but she keeps demanding more and more, and she never gets any more predictable. You’ll find yourself awake at 4am arguing with her about where you left the toilet seat."
