    I’ve spent the better part of the morning catching up on some of the awesome columns I’ve missed in The Pulse. I love your site!

    I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your Oct. 13 piece on Steve Jobs. It was a truly wonderful to Steve. We all owe so much to him. Thank you for your tribute!

    Regarding your interesting article in Pulse about digital archiving photos and passwords, I’d like to point out a couple of things. As a professional photographer that shoots film exclusively (it looks better), I’ve also noted that most people do not print their photos. However, the digital images are “processed”, either by the camera’s sensor software or my editing software such as Photoshop. A digital image on a screen is not a photograph, nor is an inkjet print. One is simply a virtual image that disappears, literally, when the file is not accessed, the prints are usually very fugitive.
    Nothing can replace an actual photo for a keepsake of memories. You need no computer, no electricity, no software, etc. You just pick it up and look at it. Digital files are NOT permanent, nor are they photographs. I wish consumers would realize this, because they’re setting themselves up for a lot of future grief when their files corrupt, or the hardware refuses to open the files due to hundreds of reasons.
    If people want to preserve the memories of people and events, it should be done w/ film. It will last decades (B&W will last centuries if printed correctly), and it is real and tangible. Not everything new is better, it’s just more convenient, but people should be aware of the consequences they are facing due to their choices. There’s little better than rummaging through your parent’s or grandparent’s chester drawers looking at photographs from another era. Regards, Steve.
