Intel is pretty smart, I don’t think I have to tell anyone with a computer that, but now they are even smarter because they’ve figured out a way to hit my heartstrings.
The Intel Museum Of Me basically takes your Facebook and creates a Museum of Modern Art exhibit out of it, which really, if we’re all going to be honest with ourselves, is all we wish would happen with all the stuff we put on Facebook. I mean, that’s what we are doing essentially– creating small showcases of our lives for the world to see.
The exhibit takes you through your friends, your pictures, your places and your videos, all to the tune of some weirdly sentimental music. Or maybe it’s just seeing all your friends and family on a wall you’d expect to see some geometric figures you don’t quite understand the point of is what makes it sentimental, but at any rate, there is some instrumentation for your tour of your life.
For the record, I am no longer having a funeral of any kind. I expect to have someone make an exhibit out of my Facebook account because obviously that is something that will be entirely possible by the time I check on out of this joint. Also, I hope to have some sort of downloadable version of my ashes available at the end.
