How life-logging can change the way we view and express ourselves

Hi folks, I am new here so sorry if this is in the wrong place.

I wrote a blog post on a slightly different perspective of life-logging, namely how it potentially can change the way we view and express ourselves. I am curious to hear your reflections. Do you agree/disagree? Any reflections? Thanks :slight_smile:

:slight_smile: nice post on your blog, with a lot of good thoughts ! I like it.
I have a simple (simplistic view) on life logging: yes applications are countless but it has to be triggered by one primary need.

What about categorizing the key needs life logging can support and what are the benefits ?
This is the approach we will take in RED-DOLPHIN in order to bring more people to use QS applied simply to every day life.

I am interested in you approach and sharing ideas …

Thanks for taking the time to read and respond! What you suggest is an interesting endeavor.

The post I wrote doesn’t really touch upon the functional benefits of life-logging, because I feel that’s the most evident, and what everyone is already doing. I rather wanted to focus on the emotional benefits, and how life-logging can be used as a resource for self construction.

If you want to read more about how I slice the benefits people feel for brands and products you can read this: http://tribaling.com/blog/2013/03/01/3-major-reasons-people-value-brands/
