London calling

So this time no morning drama…

Until we got of the customs. Security guards demanded that we deleted all the footage from the airport. This is the only thing left:

2nd out of 6 stairs

We went out for a little streetchat with the London-locals, met some nice people and saw some culture treasures.

But the highlight of the day was meeting Martin Blinder at Tric Trac. They just launched an awesome BETA-version of their site (http://www.tictrac.com/) To explain it in one sentence; You get an overview of your life (habits, feelings etc.) through the information you log. We have during this past week found out more and more the term “lifelogging” but then Quantified Self popped up as a new piece to the puzzle. According to Martin, these two concepts are the same.

We’ve been advised to go visit two Professors in Southampton, who’s supposed to be experts on the subject.

Bye for now and log your sleep (I wont but I know some do)

Hectic first day!

Our world tour has begun!

It feels awesome to finally be out filming! But the day started of dramatic. With a canceled flight bus we grabbed the nearest cab to the airport. Well there we searched for a non-existing custom, boarded a plane and finally took of to Copenhagen.

We’re staying at a hostel and had a nice chat with our roommate Li, from China. She hadn’t heard about lifelogging but gave it a good guess. Later we met the guys at Evertale, who are creating an online photoservice which will launch soon. According to them, lifeloggers do exist but have an intetion behind the logging…

Mats on the other hand, who we interviewed last Friday, saw it as a part of a technical revolution while the Danes we’ve met on the streets seem totally clueless to lifelogging.

This is confusing. We’re gonna get some sleep now and tomorrow it’s of to Beirut. Maybe we’ll get wise in Lebanon.
