MyLifeBits and PhotoBlog

Recreational stuff, photoblog, automatic digital diaries and much more


Back in the early 1990s MyLifeBits was just about to hit the internet.

Way back then
- the idea that you could capture a lifetime's worth of articles, books, cards, CDs,
letters, memos, papers, photos, pictures, presentations, videos, home movies,
videotaped lectures, and voice recordings and store them digitally, on the internet
- seemed a bit over the top.

Ten years later, Wireless Sensor Nets making automatic digital diaries
and putting them directly out on the internet for you,
and what have you from Futuropolis 2058, seems almost commonplace.
So there we are. Speeding towards the full MyLifeBits world or towards information overdose irrelevance?

The internet shrubbery below is a balance act between detail and overview.
It's not full futuropolis MyLifeBits and hopefully, it's not info OD.
Instead, below you'll find a PhotoBlog along with a few associated texts,
from that thing we call life off the internet.

For more on the original MylifeBits project see Gordon Bells the Microsoft MyLifeBits project.

Kept here for sentimental reasons.

Epitomized here as:
It turns out I'm an INTJ temperament, which is a sub-category of "rationals"
according to Keirsey. Whether this is good or not. I've no idea.
Btw. According to Keirsey statistics, in the general population the estimated ''temperament'' distribution is:
40-45% Guardians, 35-40% Artisans, 5-10% Idealists and 5-10% Rationals.
