Rebecca Armendariz: Legend


I have a beautiful friend named Rebecca Armendariz.  She lost her partner to cancer and it was - to say the least - absolutely devastating.  In the wake of his passing, she has written a beautiful piece about their relationship from a data perspective.  That is, how hard it is to escape the memories because the data - the history of their life together - will forever be emblazoned on the internet and, in this case, her gmail chat history.

Get a box of tissues ready.  It's pretty darn sad.  Love you Becca!
