The more you share online the more the chances you have to live forever. I kid you not. Think about Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, YouTube and all other places your everyday life moments are exposed to, saved, indexed, archived. We’re talking about at least a few hundred if not thousands of instances (pictures, videos, text) of everyone’s life though out the course of history.
With quarter of a billion users in Facebook, tags on pictures and face recognition technology being mainstream it’s easier than ever to crawl and collect photos and videos containing one’s personal face and moments in time, granted that permission and security issues are resolved.
With the flesh and the body in place, indexed and categorized, the social graph would be the mind and soul. Pokes, likes, status updates, friendships, fan pages, blog posts and tweets from the individual will be that little something we call character.
