Again: Life-Logging

I wrote a short post about my own Life-Logging activities on my Dutch weblog. This triggered some mixed responses from people who don’t understand the whole concept and others who became interested. It sprouted a new project – more about that soon.

This week I found this interesting post on collecting data about yourself – since governments are tracking your behavior anyway, why shouldn’t you want to gather some fascinating information about yourself?
Google Latitude, Foursquare, 4Mapper and Spiggler are the services mentioned.

  • The Aesthetics and Beauty of Knowledge

    Shih was the opposite of facts and raw information; shih was the elegance of knowledge, the insight and skill to organize knowledge into meaningful patterns. As an artist chooses colours or light to make her pictures, a master of shih chooses textures of knowledge – various ideas, myths, abstractions, and theories – to create a way of seeing the world. The aesthetics and beauty of knowledge – this was shih.

    – David Zindell, The Broken God, 1993

  • Geek Attitude

    The attitude thing is about flexibility, portability, creativity, sociability and jamming (ran out of suitable “ity” words!). It’s about improvising – in the practical and musical senses of the word; not getting tangled in boundaries and the “right” way to do things.
    Definitely the only way to travel.
