Lost and found data can tell a lot about your own personality

In this day and age we all generate digital data. Pictures, messages, information, and events are all parts of these data. Because we generate a lot, we are increasingly selective about which data is important to us. We remove and delete a lot, and do not give it any attention anymore. Precisely these data can tell a lot about yourself as a person. They are part of your own identity, your own digital language. I see it as a personal memory, being important once, but decreased in value. It is forgotten but it will always remain connected to your digital personality. Even if you are no longer physically present, these data will always exist.
