Umberto Eco died on February 19, 2016. He was a brilliant man who wrote fascinating books.
He also had an encyclopedic memory. Here’s a brief interview filmed by David Ferrario. In the interview, Eco discusses memory, computers, and a terrifying future.
For those of you with serious book envy that may trigger a Pavlovian response, have your drool cups ready at minute 5 of the interview (with English subtitles).
Who will inherit that labyrinthian library?
