Narcissus to a Man: Lifelogging, Technology and the Normativity of Truth.
At Second Annual SenseCam Symposium, Dublin,
The growth of the practice of lifelogging, exploiting the capabilities provided by the exponential increase in computer storage, and using technologies such as SenseCam as well as location-based services, Web 2.0, social networking and photo-sharing sites, has led to a growing sense of unease, articulated in books such as Mayer-Schönberger's Delete, that the semi-permanent storage of memo-ries could lead to problematic social consequences. This talk examines the argu-ments against lifelogging and storage, and argues that they seem less worrying when placed in the context of a wider debate about the nature of mind and memory and their relationship to our environment and the technology we use.
