In the age of personal digital assistants, desktop sticky notes, and streamlined cyber scheduling, real bulletin and memo boards have become somewhat of domestic relics. Found in kitchens, entryways, and home offices, these often unruly household nerve centers wear many hats: displaying mementos, postcards, and photos; tacking correspondence and bills; pegging spare keys and household jetsam; posting reminders, messages, to-do lists, clippings, coupons, and the list goes on. They can take many shapes and forms but are most commonly of the corkboard and pushpin or stainless steel and magnet varieties. Whatever materials these boards are made from, they’re in decline as many trappings of household life, for better or for worse, move online.
