Gordon Bell on MyLifeBits

September 19, 2010

At the last Bay Area QS Show&Tell meetup, Gordon Bell gave a candid, engaging talk on his MyLifeBits project. He showed pictures from his SenseCam that takes a picture every 20 seconds while he’s wearing it and contributes to the 1 GB of data he generates every month.
Watch the controversy below that emerged when Gordon speculated that if he had been wearing his heart monitor strap while bicycling, he could have prevented his last heart attack – a cardiologist in the audience disagreed that the tracking could have saved him.
