Washington Post: "Why we need to let our online memories go"

http://j.mp/R98d3u  (Washington Post)

   "We need to appreciate and preserve forgetting as a feature of
    humanity. To do so may require us to adapt our digital tools. Unlike
    our brains, they can easily be rewired. With the help of the companies
    that design our online tools, we could let tweets and Facebook
    comments expire over time."

This new Washington Post piece appears to be somewhat different than
the usual pitch for a "right to be forgotten."  It is, nonetheless,
just as illogical, unrealistic, unbalanced, and potentially dangerous
as the other calls for this misguided and impractical concept.
