A tangle of tech and memories
Measuring a career in obsolete equipment
Some tech, like the fax machine, are workplace relics most people don't miss, but other tools of the trade are more intimately connected with the trade itself and parting with them may be harder. That's something broadcast journalist David Kattenburg knows all too well.
With several decades of globe-trotting work under his belt, Kattenburg has had to face facts—for years, his Winnipeg home was brimming with obsolete audio recording equipment and the memories stored in them.
Recently, he decided to sort through and dispose of all the devices responsible for his storied career.
In an audio piece for Spark, Kattenburg takes us through a tangle of tech and memories from his decades-spanning career.
