Memory and photography

I thought this brief piece over on Slate would be a good one to mention on this blog. As I've long suspected, taking pictures doesn't aid memory and often impairs it.  I'm no expert on this, but I wonder if this doesn't have something to do with the transactive memory effect I linked to here awhile ago.

The best way to travel I've long thought is for someone else to be in charge of the camera...as long as they'll make you copies of their shots.
