How many photos are enough?

Enough-is-Enough-PosterTwo recent products have caused me to ask, “How many photos are enough?” The first is Momento, which captures two 5-megapixel photos every minute of your life, creating an endless photo stream so you can stalk your own life. The second is Google Glass, which continuously captures video.

These products lead to more questions than they answer:

  1. Do I really need two photos taken every minute?
  2. Do other people want me taking two photos every minute?
  3. How will I find the photos I really want?
  4. How will I store all these photos and what happens if my computer crashes?

I think I’ll stick with my iPhone and take pictures whenever I want
