Backup

Whenever I backup my computer files, I start from the premise that once I’m dead and gone someone will probably want to reconstruct my life in vivid detail for curiosity-seekers and will need to have access to everything I’ve ever done.

As a result, I'm very careful to set up my life such that everything I do each day is recorded by cameras and microphones, each keystroke is saved on computers I use, and each and every middle-of-the-night snore (not that I snore) is logged into a database. And so, when I change computers every 3 to 5 years as mandated by law, I have to back up all that info. And let me tell you, the job is a bear. With every detail of my life recorded, it takes quite a while, and the average person can't help but wonder if my history is worth that effort.

Guess what: it is.

Just imagine that in years to come my biographer(s) will have no trouble reconstructing my life down to the minute detail. Also, it will be enormously helpful to me when I write my autobiography before I die (when most autobiographies tend to be written), the main difference being that when I sit down with all the data retrieved from the banks of computers, I’ll only be able to review each and every little movement I’ve ever made up to that point, whereas my biographers are going to have the additional ability to review me reviewing my life.

How much more will they learn about me by reviewing me reviewing my life? Will a biographer have an advantage over me if my autobiography and his or her biography of me are entered into the same writing contest? Also, will my biographers be able to take into account some of the things that I do as a ghost (that is, my post-death feats)?

These are the kinds of things that keep me up at night. Luckily, you’re going to be able to read all about this insomnia issue in my autobiography (as well as several scandalous unauthorized biographies).

Stay tuned. (Please).
