Part II – Project Upgrade

10 – MEM Microcosm

A MEM is a microcosm of media and mind. Humanity has a predilection for recording memories. Digital compilations expand and contract as more reflective memories are committed to bits and bytes. The contributions in this published work within WordPress Pressbooks server are erratic with no regulated frequency – a fluctuating MEM sandwich of content.

A MEM is expressed in content such as “weblogs” (“Blog,” 2016), containerized for distribution, that can be modified, searched, and annotated. The term MEM describes the next generation digital packaged content of aggregated memories that form a cohesive human readable assemblage for the expressed purpose of assimilating or accommodating meaning into an individual’s reality.

Sensory Device Extension

Mobile devices, from smartglasses to tablets, provide MEM loci of bidirectional connectivity in time and space. The devices are sensory extensions transmitting and receiving reality that may be assimilated, accommodated, or neither permutation of recognition resulting in confusion and noise. Connections may be embedded in the MEM or directly hyperlinked. Depending on the container reader/viewer, the external application may function internally and externally as a connector to the mobile device.
