Last week our Chairman, Julian Ranger , sat down with Gordon Bell and Robert Scoble to discuss life logging, and how SocialSafe can enable users to get their whole story, in an online world were we tell stories in a variety of different places.
Gordon Bell, Researcher Emeritus at Microsoft Research, pioneered the concept of life logging, and since 1999 has – among other endeavours – worked on MyLifeBits, an experiment in lifetime storage and a software research effort. Robert Scoble is Startup Liaison Officer at Rackspace, but is perhaps best known for his blog, Scobleizer, which came to prominence during his tenure as a technical evangelist at Microsoft.

We feel that taking ownership of your data is very important, but the ability to view and use the data from across a number of different social networks is where SocialSafe really excels, and we’re thrilled that Robert and Gordon agree with what we’re enabling our users to achieve with our app.
As Julian explains in the video, all data that a SocialSafe user backs up is downloaded directly from their social network accounts and then stored on their own machine. This makes using SocialSafe totally private, and gives users their whole story without having to share it with anyone else.
