Historians exploring the past study documents, scriptures, stories of folklore, journals and letters, seeing the various perspectives about how people lived at that time.
Future historians will have tons of material to study the current age, as data is getting accumulated at a record rate across the globe, with emails, text messages, videos, photographs and social media posts.
Each of these mediums provides a rich understanding of life in our times.
Desks, closets, kitchen cupboards. They all seem to fill up naturally with stuff we sort off want, but also don't want to get rid of. In an attempt to declutter tidy a space, Marie Kondo asks this question: Does it spark joy? If not, she advises getting rid of it.
But while Kondo gives good advice, we should go further. Past the tidying awaits another process: curating.
