Blogging. Lifestreaming. What's next: Lifelogging!

Smile when you talk to research legend Gordon Bell. You're on candid camera.

Bell wears two cameras around his neck all his waking hours. One of them he calls a SenseCam. It takes a digital photograph every 20 seconds or so -- all day, every day, year after year. Soon you'll be able to buy a SenseCam of your own. (I'll tell you where - follow the link.)

This automated capturing of your life's events is called Lifelogging. It will take many forms, but I predict it will become a major trend -- like Facebook. What do you think?

SciFi writer - Bob Shaw, wrote many great books, but my favorite one is "The Ceres Solution" which is about a race of humans on another planet called Mollan who live to be five-thousand years in perfect youth and what happens when they meet humans from earth who only live eight decades at best with many ills. One of the problems the Mollans have is trying to remember what they did a few decades, much less a few hundred or thousand years ago, and so they walk around with recorders on their wrists so that they can record big moments in their life to relive later. I knew one day this would become a reality.
