Title: Lifestreaming as a life design methodology
Author: Mullen, Jessica E.
Abstract: My research explores the potential of lifestreaming as a life design methodology . Life design is the design of one’s daily activities , habits and relationships . Like graphic or industrial design , life design can be approached using a specific methodology to solve problems–in the case of life design , problems of individual , daily life . “Lifestream” was first defined by computer scientist David Gelernter as a software architecture consisting of a time -ordered stream of documents . Lifestreaming has evolved into the act of documenting and sharing aspects of daily existence online . A lifestream website collects the things you choose to publish (e . g . , photos , tweets , videos , or blog posts ) and displays them in reverse -chronological order . Putting one’s life online might provide the critical perspective to help redesign it . After practicing lifestreaming for two years and performing four lifestream website experiments , I have devised a lifestreaming system that encourages users to gain more control over personal advancement and deliberate decision -making .
