“Computers have reached the point in which continuous, verbatim recording of an individual’s life experiences is technologically feasible. The challenge now is turning vast repositories of such recordings into a useful resource while respecting the social, legal, and ethical ramifications of ubiquitous recording. We have built a “memory prosthesis” that can be used to amass such data for the purpose of helping people with common, everyday memory problems.” –Sunil Vemuri

(EndOfTheAmericanDream) – The talking heads on all the major news shows keep telling us that the U.S. economy is experiencing a recovery.
