Digi-topia or not?

In the article by Gordon Bell and Jim Gemmell "A Digital Life" it was announced a launch of a research project aimed at creating a digital archive of all Bell's interactions with the world. Bell's digital memories include documents from his long career in the computer industry, all the photographs he takes and conversations he records, every Web site he visits, and every e-mail he sends and receives. Some of the actual screen shots from Bell's archive are incorporated in the article images.
And this is only the start. What's going to be further? Perhaps some of us will have portable "tape-recorders" that will tape every step we do, every emotion, every smell and so on.....
These thoughts make me prick up ears.
