Scott Kuhl Warning: I may have no idea what I am talking about!

Have you seen the movie, The Final Cut with Robin Williams?  Well, it centers around this technology people have implanted in their brains before birth that records their entire life.  Robin William's character takes these recordings and turns it into a 2 hour summation of people's lives to be shown at the funeral.

Far fetched?  What if I told you the Microsoft research group is working on this?  The project is called MyLifeBits.  The engineer in charge, Gordon Bell, hopes to create a digital record of everything he sees and hears.  This would work by wearing a recording device that snaps 1,000 pictures per day and saves audio notes.  And that's only version 1.
