FutureGrinder: Participatory Panopticon with Jamais Cascio
Conversation with Jamais (35MB, 49mins)
Jamais Cascio, co-founder and Senior Contributing Editor of WorldChanging.com gave a presentation at the Accelerating Change 2005 converence where he described his idea of a "Participatory Panopticon" - a society where everyone is constantly recording their experiences because so doing helps make their life easier.
As I've been interested in that idea myself for quite some time (and was, in fact, recording constantly at the conference), I was immediately intrigued. I was not disappointed. I found myself nodding heavily in agreement with his thoughts.
After his presentation, I asked him if he'd be willing to talk a bit more about the world of always on recording, and this conversation was the result.
