Sir Isaac Newton's marginalia

And, a closer look at one of our questions through IM:  

Question: I am researching the negative effects of digital images; how taking too many pictures degrades our memory and ruins experience.

Answer Starting with the Psychology Research Guide would be a good first step, then moving on to the computer science literature.  Try using simple search terms like digital photography and effects and memory or experience, rather than including too many additional concepts in a database search.  Articles like Digital photography: communication, identity, memory”  research being done on this topic.
