  1. I think in the future, people could change their whole body (except head) with a robot and live really very long.
    Sensors, in my opinion, are underused. They're cheap and very useful. Eg. Tap Water in public toilets.

  2. I feel like we are trying to watch something true a bunch of mirrors but it's actually right in front of us. Is beeing human about to mean "undertanding yourself thanks to your cellphone? I don't think it is a good direction to take. Any man and woman on this earth has lived all his life beeing himself and building himself reacting to external and internal circumstances so knowing when you are tired, when you sleep good, when you are stressed or finding your soul mate, come on, these are thing you have within you! You know it all! are we going to let ourself ruled by technology rather than by our own nature?

  3. I got rid of my smart phone. Feels good to not be a drone. I got a wearable sensor in my brain. They call it a brain.

  4. I wish she had at least acknowledged, if not addressed (because time constraints don't allow for it at TED), the incredibly complicated dialogue about privacy that relates to quantified self and lifelogging.

    And anybody who cites that idiotic "we use 10% of our brain" bunk makes me cry.
