< WHAT TIME DOES TO TEXT: Some thoughts about information decay

Lex: Whether it takes minutes or millenia, eventually all text vanishes.
Linda: (nodding) If you contemplate the 'lifespan' of an average text, it's sobering. Only a few texts survive beyond the lifespan of their creators. Most of what we write is essentially dead within hours or days.
Ron: Interesting how we imagine texts as animate objects. In fact, there is no life: only pixels on screens or words on paper.
Lis: (shrugging her shoulders) Besides, aren't we already overloaded with information? We are bombarded with trivia, but when it comes to valuable information how much input do we actually receive?
