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!
