About

Have you ever gone through a box of old things and wondered, "Does anyone else on the planet care about this?"

I have.  A lot.  In fact, I spend a lot of time living in a "creative space" and much of that space was formed and populated over the past few decades of my life.

So, I decided to move some of those memories out of my brain and onto the Internet... and, in the process, give my daughters something to make their own memories from.

That, in a nutshell, is ret.ention.net

Q:  Aren't you concerned about copyright and trademark?

A:  As best we can tell, the content here has lapsed into the public domain because its owner/publisher has gone out of business and didn't sell the rights to anyone.  (Beyond that, I'd argue that the commentary and review here fall under 'Fair Use' doctrine, but that's a topic for another day.)  For instance, Panarizon Publishing Corporation disappeared in 1981 and the Story of America Cards trademark was cancelled in 1988.  If anyone has information about this (or other) companies, please let me know because I'd love to have a conversation about how we can archive and document their historical work in a more formal fashion than what my daughters and I can do here.

All that said, any content here under active copyright is property of its respective owners; ret.ention.net does not claim ownership of any part of the original work.
