Genius lost

It’s worth pondering the sheer amount of genius and eloquence lost to browser bugs, software crashes and lost connections since people began blogging and writing their thoughts down digitally.

I’ve personally lost a number of posts and other ephemera… But what might be the net karmic loss owing to such minor disasters?

  1. I’ve lost quite a bit of work to browsers over the last 7 years. It was especially bad back in the days when Mozilla’s MTBF was less than 1% of what it is today 🙂

    The flipside is that I’ve also put down a lot of work that would have faded into the ether had it not been for browsers giving me convenient access to tools for writing and storing that work.
