Background Bell, C. G., & Gemmell, J. (2009). Total recall : how the E-memory revolution will change everything. New York: Dutton. Lifeloggers typically wear computers in order to capture their entire lives, or large portions of their lives wikipedia
Phones – Lifelogging devices Smart Phones can be used/are being used as lifelogging devices Location aware (GPS, Compass) Call, SMS, Email, docs, photos, video, social network updates Hartnell-Young, E., & Vetere, F. (2005). Lifeblog: a new concept in mobile learning? Paper presented at the Wireless and Mobile Technologies in Education. WMTE 2005. IEEE International Workshop on.
A critique of lifelogging Beyond Total Capture: A Constructive Critique of Lifelogging Sellen, A., & Whittaker, S. (2010). Beyond total capture: a constructive critique of lifelogging. Communications of the ACM, 53(5), 70-77. 1. Selectivity, not total capture 2. Cues not capture 3. Memory refers to a complex, multi- faceted set of concepts 4. Synergy not substitution Related reference. Mayer-Scho ̈ nberger, Viktor.

Our digital past It seems inevitable more of our everyday lives will be captured digitally The end of the ephemeral Harper, R. Rodden, T., Rogers, Y., Sellen, A. (editors), 2008. Being human: Human– computer interaction in the year 2020. Cambridge: Microsoft Research
Designing for deletion How to better design for deletion in technology that stores personal digital content? Think Email – does anyone have a good email storage/deletion system? Think Facebook – What should happen to mundane, day to day stuff well into future? Inappropriate or incorrect comments relating to you, regretful photos, how do you delete a friend?
Designing for deletion Limited storage Active storage/deletion Stored Deleted Stored Abundant storage Accumulate
Demotion GrayArea Bergman, O., Tucker, S., Beyth-Marom, R., Cutrell, E., & Whittaker, S. (2009). It's not that important: demoting personal information of low subjective importance using GrayArea. Paper presented at the Proceedings of ACM CHI 2009 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems.
Candidate audiences Everyday life The commuter (yesterdays observation) Reading MX Spacing out * 2 Music on phone * 2 News on phone * 2 (I was reading sport news) Billiards game on phone
Candidate audiences Youth into adulthood Formal processes for deletion Museums (unwanted artifacts) Photographer – what to delete / keep? Hard waste Juvenile Crime, Bankruptcy Law Allen, A. L.

Consider death When you create a will, you decide the future of items of monetary, and emotional value What digital content should be kept and who should have access to it? What should be deleted?

Question for you How should I best spend my time prior to collecting data, as the topic is still being formulated? Especially given we typically apply grounded theory Is meeting people and reading relevant literature enough?
