A great short story,

https://subterraneanpress.com/magazine/fall_2013/the_truth_of_fact_the_truth_of_feeling_by_ted_chiang

Technology always changes society, and one of the cool things about scifi writers is that they get to explore the possible changes before they happen, and ask us to examine how we feel about the possibilities.

This story asks us to examine how the internet memory, and possibly a future of even more recording and recall will change who we are by changing how we remember things.
Subterranean Press is widely considered to be among the finest specialty publishers in the horror, suspense, fantasy and dark mystery genres.

There's a free library for making and messing with PDF files, but it requires JVM to run. They ported it to .NET also. Sigh.
