The article reflects the views of the author concerning the delicate human memory as an important part of the cable industry's future in the U.S. It suggests that to deal with fragile memory, one must make a personal "timeline" that might be in the form of Excel spreadsheet. In that way, one could enter important notes, events and other information as it occurs. For the author, personal timeline could be an enjoyable pastime which might have some personal benefits.
