there’s been a lot of chat about ‘lifestreaming’ of late, so what is it? well in its simplest form it’s an aggregated view of all your life activities online. it’s a collection of all the ways you communicate, connect and cache your life online. 

in it’s simplest form it’s a chronological aggregated view of your life activities both online and offline. it is only limited by the content and sources that you use to define it. most people that create them choose a few sources based on sites that track our activities such as (bookmarking), flickr (photos we take) youtube (videos that we make) etc…then you can either find software to host your own, or find sites that provide a platform for you.

these social network aggregators are a relatively new breed of applications which try to consolidate all our various social networking profiles into one, check it out.

  1. Lifestreaming is really all about your current ‘online lives’ but there’s a whole breed of new genealogy style websites which track your entire life story online via blogging, video, photos etc (all in the one site) which is stored in a “vault” to which your entire family can contribute. Like a permanent record online….not sure I feel about that yet but interesting nonetheless…
