MSN messenger and Proust: what is the digital version of the madeleine cake?

What is the olfactory bulb of the digital age?

Is it a font? A sound?

No matter how, or through what, it’s what makes us happy that we remember. As we turn more towards digital worlds and artificial people, It gives me a sense of hope that at least happy memories will remain real.
