Today I was reading this month’s Wired magazine when I came across this article called Desktop R.I.P. The article discusses the migration of our application use from the offline (desktop) world to that of rich online applications. I like the term they dubbed calling it cloudware. Near the end of the article I read the following which speaks directly to benefits gained by Lifestreaming.
“What if online services could see the trail of bread crumbs people leave behind them on the Net? Privacy concerns aren’t likely to trump the ample benefits. With a rich archive of personal data, online services could respond to individual preferences and habits.”
