Lifestreaming is the newest phrase used to describe what happens when a person creates "an online record of a person's daily activities, either via direct video feed or via aggregating the person's online content such as blog".
It's what happens when you combine your minute by minute Twitter posts with your activity on the Advertising Club Meetup message boards, Del.icio.us posts, LinkedIn profile, last.fm music listening and Mimeo.com posts on our blog that tracks developments in on demand printing. And I forgot to mention Digg.com and of course Plaxo.
The next wave of companies are going to begin aggregate this collection of lifestreams. New apps such as Friendfeed promise to simply all of this....I hope they do because lifestreaming is challenging enough without the added burden of tracking it all.
