to pay for storage space
I say make prints of what is important and let the rest sit where it is and if by chance it disappears then let it disappear...
As for too many pics, well I love having too many pics. Lately it’s a great pastime to let my mother in law go through albums of pics. Even with her dementia mind she still consistently has one comment. “One should always have lots of pics. People tell me I look like my mother but I have never seen my mother. She passed away when I was too young and I don’t know what she looks like”
Having said that, storing tangible albums is another issue altogether! (Since we are on the topic of storage😜)
The Google founder boys had a 'do no evil' slogan for the company. You could just sense at the time that they would do just that. And they did and continue to do so. Only now there are so many of them doing the same that their server farms are competing with each other in seeing who has the biggest ecological footprint of them all: the banality of evil normalized for the good of all.
