Remembering and Forgetting in the Digital Age

Remembering and Forgetting in the Digital Age, co-authored by Berkman Klein Center Executive Director Urs Gasser, "examines the fundamental question of how legislators and other rule-makers should handle remembering and forgetting information (especially personally identifiable information)."

"It encompasses such topics as privacy, data protection, individual and collective memory, and the right to be forgotten when considering data storage, processing and deletion. The authors argue in support of maintaining the new digital default, that (personally identifiable) information should be remembered rather than forgotten."
