Remembering 2017 with forgotten information

As usual, at the end of a year, we look back and try to remember all the moments, the good and the bad, the happy and the unhappy. Our memories are brought back using notebooks, photographs, pictures, sounds, bookmarks etc. All this information, although it seems big, is consumed in afternoon, and this seems amazing since we are sure that in the previous year we accessed very big volumes of information from sites, blogs, books, radios, television etc. Where is all this information now? Well it is lost. Unfortunately we live in the digital dark ages and information is not archived or classified properly. It becomes more and more difficult to find old data. Everybody cares and builds for real time data and access only.

I got the habit of archiving thinks i like so that i can access them anytime. However this is just the tip of the iceberg. My archive for 2017 is just a big directory of saved pages, pdfs, images, mp3 and in general a bunch of unstructured data. Clearly i must find a better way, maybe something like perkeep but this is not the point. The point is that we are loosing information and we can't tell if something is important until we need it a second time.

Nevertheless a bad archive is better than no archive and it can remind you some great moments. Here are some of my favorite photos of 2017. Some of them are famous, some of them not. There are real photos, edited photos and sketches. I couldn't find the original source for most of them so there are no references to the sources. None of them is mine and i don't have any claims on them.
