“In 10 years from now, people will be sharing 1,000 times as many things as they do today.”


People are generally laughing at Mark Zuckerberg for this quote, claiming that they couldn’t post 1,000x more per day updates or pictures of what they are eating. I submit that these people are stuck in the status quo and suffering from a lack of imagination around the awareness of devices that are here now or will be soon.
Google Glass is around the corner at approximately $1,500 and the Memoto’s life blogging camera for $249 is in kickstarter mode right now, already reaching their modest $50,000 goal and pushing towards $150K. This wearable device will take a 5 megapixel picture every 5 seconds tagged with Geolocation data.

Wearable cameras with a computer like Google Glass and more dedicated recording devices will grow in adoption and acceptance. In countries where automobile accident fraud is a problem or corrupt police try to shake you down for bribes, people have resorted to protecting themselves by installing their own hidden dash cams in their cars like cops in the U.S. are mandated to use.

The future is here, it’s just not evenly distributed.
