A camera that’s on round the clock
Is something at which most would balk.
But the stuff we could learn
Outweighs this concern.
I think, for weird stuff, it could rock.
- We could solve etymological mysteries! e.g. nerd (1951), zit (1960s), “Earl-aye in the morning”
- XKCD on weird stuff and the prevalence of cameras
- lifelogging (private) vs. “life caching” (public)
- This paper states:
[…] we do not feel that lifelogging is capable of reaching
the “power” stage, just yet, is the challenge that is related to
managing the amounts of data that are collected on a daily
basis (Wang and Smeaton 2013), and the social issues
related to collecting one’s daily experiences (e.g., privacy,
Jacquemard et al. 2014).
- Healthy skepticism vs. pseudoskepticism
