How Lifelogging is Transforming the Way We Remember, Track Our Lives

Once explored by only an elite few, the practice of lifelogging refers, quite literally, to logging or registering your daily life with technical tools and services.

When lifelogging first emerged in the 1980’s, pioneers wore bulky heads-up-displays, computer backpacks and even computerized shoes, capturing large portions of their lives as physiological data, photos and videos.

With the onset of social networks centered on status updates and photo sharing, the practice of recording and tracking life has gone mainstream.
