My digital story

A few years ago, I received a strong warning about the fragility of my digital personality: I fainted at the finish line of a half marathon. The heart attack was not confirmed, but I fully realized the dangers for my digital memory scattered somewhere in the Internet clouds:

  • in case of sudden death, it would become inaccessible to my family and friends
  • AI has already started manipulating my digital memories recently
  • slowly creeping Alzheimer’s would erase memories from my head

Therefore I started re-writing the information from several sources into simple Google sheets containing dates, texts, photos and links. I refreshed my programming skills, almost forgotten by 25 years working as an IT manager, and wrote the application for viewing, editing and sharing Google sheets data on the Web and Mobile and converting them into various other Web applications.
