(These are my notes from Scott’s talk at the Intel HCPI 2 conference.)

Types of collections:
- Pack rats
- Set collections (stamps, Franklin mint)
- Obsessive collections – satisfies a craving (Pokémon, N*Sync)
- Pragmatic collections – put away or discarded after use (music)
- Sentimental collections – about reminiscence (kids trophies)
Interesting question: What happens when collections are no longer physical, when CD collections become mp3’s on a hard drive, for example?
