Lifelogging in the Communications of the ACM

Tom Geller wrote a very interesting article in the Communications of the ACM on lifelogging, revolving around Gordon Bell‘s efforts in this space.

Referring back to the original vision of Vannevar Bush from 1945, Tom spans a number of contemporary efforts in the space, such as the announced Memoto device (which is closest to the Gordon Bell approach to logging media as well as a number of sensors). One such effort mentioned is also our AIRS and Storica platforms.

Other efforts point in directions of using lifelogging for subverting surveillance (interestingly termed Sousveillance) by empowering individuals through the sensors they are carrying around anyways Рcitizen activitism!

The article is definitely worthwhile checking out (following this link)!
