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

Types of collections:

  1. Pack rats
  2. Set collections (stamps, Franklin mint)
  3. Obsessive collections – satisfies a craving (Pokémon, N*Sync)
  4. Pragmatic collections – put away or discarded after use (music)
  5. 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?
