The fast-growing development of nanotechnology supports the idea of 'infinitive' data storage, as we are able to store more and more information. This leads us to a future where we would be able to store everything. My PhD project is focused on exploring the future outcomes of such a vision. If we could store everything, would we be able to actually retrieve relevant information? If so, how? Would we need tools to clean our digital dirt? How will we interact with our digital world on an individual but also collective and social level if we have no storage limitations?
