App Memoir Commits Your Digital History to Memory

From MIT Tech Review: The app comes at a time when we’re collecting ever more personal data with every social-network update, location check-in, and photo posting—a mound that will only grow as we make more use of mobile devices and wearable tech like smart watches and Google Glass. Yet most of us aren’t taking advantage of this information, Hoffman argues, so Memoir, which rolled out two months ago, does it for you by wrangling photos from your phone and connected social networks, as well as status updates and location check-ins. It also uses clever tricks to call up these old memories on the basis of where you are, what you’re doing, and who you’re with.
