It’s alive! Images as its memory

I was able to insert an image in to my tweet from my clipboard. This is a very useful feature, and one which I take for granted. With the press of three buttons and a short gesture of the mouse, I’m able to capture a memory in digital form. Part evidence, part reminder of what I saw on-screen. Such a facility to extend my memory, and my ability to explain something is an “enhancing technology” which Miller (2011 p221) describes.
