Towards Experiential Computing

It has been a few years since I've been looking for a clever system able to capture rich media experiences. I've been attending large conferences, where I desperately felt the need to capture, in a rich and meaningful way, diverse experiences: talks, random or prepared meetings, ephemeral chats, sightseeings etc.

Could not find anything. I discovered some research work such as LifeLog or MyLifeBits. And now I see a bit more clearly into the problem, thanks to Ramesh Jain. Life=Experiences (Events) . Laptops and phones are not computers, they are experiential devices. They enable us to capture and share experiences, and consequently create knowledge. Watch the talk here.

Another Sync Nightmare

Every now and then, honest people, using modern technology, spend hours, late in the night, crawling through the forums,looking for a tiny piece of wisdom that would help them do very simple things: synchronize emails, calendars ...

I hate blogging about this, but I have to admit that it is a big relief when you find the magic cure. So, if you're the happy owner of an iPhone 4 and you want to synchronize with multiple Google calendars, this is the info you may desperately look for : https://www.google.com/calendar/iphoneselect once you're logged in.

All other details (why ? how ? where ? etc) are useless.

Good luck !
