Digital Nomads

A fascinating article here about a couple that travel all over the World in an orange camper-van to create accurate, digital maps for GPS devices. This is the kind of amazing job that would not have been thought of ten years ago.

It is also similar to what this gentleman is doing, Ulenaers and Vanlaar are being paid to document their whereabouts. Elahi is recording his whereabouts and regularly photographing his day-to-day experiences in order to persuade the FBI that he is not a terrorist.

Lifelogs then, are presumably going to be The New New Thing after online social networking has become normal.

In a completely unrelated story: an orangutan has escaped from a zoo in Taiwan! There's video footage. Please watch.
