On 4th February 2004, the Pentagon cancelled its LifeLog project run by DARPA, the research arm of the United States Department of Defense (responsible for developing emerging technologies for use by the military).
It was “an ambitious effort to build a database tracking a person’s entire existence.”
“LifeLog aimed to gather in a single place just about everything an individual says, sees or does: the phone calls made, the TV shows watched, the magazines read, the plane tickets bought, the emails sent and received.”
Then you probably wouldn’t be surprised to know when Facebook launched:
4th February 2004.
Think about it.
