Traditional views of the canon of memory limit it to mere memorization or, at best, memorization of lists of topics to be used during invention and thus are easily dismissed as irrelevant in the age of computers. "Data-palace: Modern memory work in digital environments" presents audio interviews paired with screen capture recordings of modern writers' memory work to argue that cultural-historical activity theory, particularly theories of distributed cognition, provide more robust ways of understanding the digital tools, practices, and products of modern memory work.
