(CNN) — A couple years ago, a Microsoft researcher named Gordon Bell embarked on a personal experiment: He would wear a video camera around
his neck all the time and keep this “life recorder” always turned on, so it would record everything he did.
It was like an external memory drive for his brain, he wrote in a book called “Total Recall.”
Sounds pretty sci-fi, right? Not so much. The “real-time sharing” updates Facebook announced Thursday aim to do something quite similar — only for the Internet instead of in real life.
“Timeline is the story of your life,” Zuckerberg said.
