By the way, have you noticed how important the time aspect has become since we went digital? Nothing exists without a timestamp, not really. The timestamp grounds us in reality, in the reality of our everday lives, as a point of referentiality in a non-referential cyberspace. 

It might even be said that the timestamp is our very first tag. But I'm happy the timestamp exists. How could I otherwise document my internet activites, that is, the reality of my internet activites that are my social activities without ending up with a fictional documentary? Which, in itself is an oxymoron. Nevertheless, time may be irrevocable, timestamps are manipulatable. Can I trust the data I find? Will my documentation be real? Or will it need correction?
