Lost and Found

One of my favorite books is “Lost Empires” by J.B. Priestly. It makes me think about loss and where things go when they “go lost” which, of course, makes me wonder about technology. What happens to extinct technology, where does it go? Do we ever really rid ourselves of anything or is there some way it will all come back to haunt us. They used to say when you were done with a computer you should pull out the hard drive and beat it with a rock so that your data would be securely disposed of but in this world of connectivity how do we know lost is really lost? Can we really be sure we are rid of anything?
