I had been using the Ren­der Ghosts as way to under­stand some­thing about the Inter­net, but it felt like the Ren­der Ghosts, the Inter­net, were try­ing to explain some­thing to me. The Ren­der Ghosts are lost too, adrift in his­to­ry and vir­tu­al net­works, which increas­ing­ly resem­ble mem­o­ry. We can’t hear their voic­es but we can see them every­where, if we look: those parts of our­selves and oth­ers, the remem­brance of things, strug­gling to sur­vive in the churn of infor­ma­tion.
