I recently stumbled upon this cool little tool: Onlife by Edison Thomaz. It records what you do and creates a journal of your activities. It stores information a lot like your brain: in chronological order. I love the idea. In fact, I think that is how computers should store and retrieve information in the first place. Death to the hierarchical file system! It is one piece of the puzzle of how computers of the future should work.
Update: I just love weblogging. Of course, someone out there is more knowledgable than me (Thanks, Robert!) and points me to the work of one David Gelernter and one Eric Freeman from the first half of the nineties called “Lifestreams“. I am just starting to read up on it but I feel as if I have found the holy grail!
