Of course I'd choose writing.
For one thing, it's how I remember things. That's how I got started in this Internet writing anyway - writing down stuff I knew in a place where it was easy to find.
Second, it's history - I can look back over 20 years of my life now and see it all recorded in things I wrote about.
Finally, because I've written so much over so many years, I can actually even get a kick out of things I wrote and had forgotten about entirely.
