Software over the rainbow

desearch and revelopment

A Timestamped Generation

Thinking about the traces we leave behind in all the software we use, I was wondering:

How will the biography of a data-intensive person – you know, blogs, twitter, delicious, tumblr, last.fm…– look like in the future? Will those “domestic privacies” be taken into account?

How will the fact that we have a clear, unambiguous point of reference for our own thoughts, places visited, people met, images, consumed products… affect the way we perceive ourselves? or the way we will be perceived in the future?

Just thinking out loud, to hear how it sounds like.
