THE PENTAGON CANCELED its so-called LifeLog project, an ambitious effort to build a database tracking a person's entire existence.

Run by Darpa, the Defense Department's research arm, LifeLog aimed to gather in a single place just about everything an individual says, sees or does: the phone calls made, the TV shows watched, the magazines read, the plane tickets bought, the e-mail sent and received. Out of this seemingly endless ocean of information, computer scientists would plot distinctive routes in the data, mapping relationships, memories, events and experiences.

LifeLog's backers said the all-encompassing diary could have turned into a near-perfect digital memory, giving its users computerized assistants with an almost flawless recall of what they had done in the past. But civil libertarians immediately pounced on the project when it debuted last spring, arguing that LifeLog could become the ultimate tool for profiling potential enemies of the state.

Researchers close to the project say they're not sure why it was dropped late last month. Darpa hasn't provided an explanation for LifeLog's quiet cancellation. "A change in priorities" is the only rationale agency spokeswoman Jan Walker gave to Wired News.

However, related Darpa efforts concerning software secretaries and mechanical brains are still moving ahead as planned.

LifeLog is the latest in a series of controversial programs that have been canceled by Darpa in recent months. The Terrorism Information Awareness, or TIA, data-mining initiative was eliminated by Congress – although many analysts believe its research continues on the classified side of the Pentagon's ledger. The Policy Analysis Market (or FutureMap), which provided a stock market of sorts for people to bet on terror strikes, was almost immediately withdrawn after its details came to light in July.

"I've always thought (LifeLog) would be the third program (after TIA and FutureMap) that could raise eyebrows if they didn't make it clear how privacy concerns would be met," said Peter Harsha, director of government affairs for the Computing Research Association.

"Darpa's pretty gun-shy now," added Lee Tien, with the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which has been critical of many agency efforts. "After TIA, they discovered they weren't ready to deal with the firestorm of criticism."

That's too bad, artificial-intelligence researchers say. LifeLog would have addressed one of the key issues in developing computers that can think: how to take the unstructured mess of life, and recall it as discreet episodes – a trip to Washington, a sushi dinner, construction of a house.

"Obviously we're quite disappointed," said Howard Shrobe, who led a team from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Artificial Intelligence Laboratory which spent weeks preparing a bid for a LifeLog contract. "We were very interested in the research focus of the program ... how to help a person capture and organize his or her experience. This is a theme with great importance to both AI and cognitive science."

To Tien, the project's cancellation means "it's just not tenable for Darpa to say anymore, 'We're just doing the technology, we have no responsibility for how it's used.'"

Private-sector research in this area is proceeding. At Microsoft, for example, minicomputer pioneer Gordon Bell's program, MyLifeBits, continues to develop ways to sort and store memories.

David Karger, Shrobe's colleague at MIT, thinks such efforts will still go on at Darpa, too.

"I am sure that such research will continue to be funded under some other title," wrote Karger in an e-mail. "I can't imagine Darpa 'dropping out' of such a key research area."

The world’s most popular social networking website Facebook was launched on this day in 2004, by 19-year-old computing and psychology student Mark Zuckerberg.

Facebook now has over 1.8 billion active users who use the site to keep in touch with friends and relatives, learn more about their own areas of interest and share information and pictures.


In 2003 Zuckerberg had built a website called Facemash, in which he placed two photos of Harvard students next to each other and had people vote on which was the more attractive. This had got him into trouble with the university, while marking him out as a programming prodigy to other students.

The popularity of Facemash inspired Zuckerberg to create ‘Thefacebook’, a networking site initially just for Harvard students. His friend and future colleague Dustin Moskovitz claims that within 24 hours of the site’s launch on February 4, between 1,200 and 1,500 students had signed up to it.


Fellow students Moskovitz, Chris Hughes, Eduardo Saverin and Andrew McCollum were brought on board to help with programming, design, marketing and financing. By the summer, Thefacebook was available to all the Ivy League colleges.

A week after the site’s launch, Zuckerberg was accused by students Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss and Divya Narendra of having stolen the idea from them. The dispute led to a full-blown lawsuit, which was finally settled in 2008 with the Winklevosses and Narendra receiving $65 million.


The site was renamed simply Facebook in 2005, and the following year it became open to anyone over the age of 13 with a valid email address. By 2008, it was the most-used networking site in the world.

Facebook – Did you know?
While he was in high school, Mark Zuckerberg created Synapse, a music player that used artificial intelligence to learn users’ listening preferences.
After his sophomore (second) year, Zuckerberg dropped out of Harvard to devote himself to Facebook full-time, moving the company to Palo Alto, California.
By the end of 2004 – less than a year after its launch – Facebook had over one million users.
Zuckerberg turned down an offer of $1 billion from Yahoo! to sell them his company in 2006. Microsoft and Google have also made offers for at least part of the company.
The creation of Facebook and Zuckerberg’s dispute with the Winklevosses, Narendra and former partner Saverin formed the basis of the 2010 film The Social Network, starring Jesse Eisenberg. The film won three Oscars but was called ‘inaccurate’ by Zuckerberg.

Facebook has faced claims that the site can have a negative impact on self-esteem and create feelings of envy and loneliness.
Zuckerberg is the chairman and chief executive of Facebook. In July 2014, aged just 30, his personal wealth was estimated at over $33 billion.
Along with other notably wealthy people such as Steve Jobs and Warren Buffett, Zuckerberg has signed up to the 'Giving Pledge', promising to donate at least 50% of his wealth to charity over the course of his lifetime.

The hardest thing in the business world is to generate the sales. I also would be starting out with the online marketing because the offline methods are not generating enough leads. I think that Pay Per Click Advertising is going to help me in the best way possible. Can you share your experience with the PPC ads?
