  1. Yes and a friend just pointed me tothis study which talks about every time we recall a memory, we also remake it – am loving the notion of \”save as\”, rather than just \”save\”!http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=1739953

  2. Thanks! Very interesting. I think there are problems with the 'save as' analogy, as it relates to distortions to the label rather than the content. (When you do 'save as' to a document, you don't change the document, only the file name.) But anyway… it's a nice idea.
