Converging mylifebits home a v with media center l.jpg
Converging MyLifeBits, Home A/V with Media Center

MyLifeBits is an “on-going” project following CyberAll to “cyberize” and now be able to USE all of bits!

  • Memory recall of books, CDs, communication, papers, photos, video, TV and saved TV (unless I’ll be incarcerated)

  • Photos of physical object collections

  • Elimination of all physical stores & objects

  • Content and use: ambiance, entertainment, communication, interaction using Media Center for music, photos, TV & saved TV, videos

  • Telephone and other conversations and messages

    To understand and utilize the 1 TByte PC:need, utility, cost, feasibility, problems & tools.

Cyber All, a 1 Tbyte, lifetime PC: CenterCyberizing everything…I’ve written, said, presented (incl. video), photos of physical objects & a few things I’ve read, heard, seen


Imagine the killer app for the one tbyte lifetime pc l.jpg
Imagine the “killer app” for: CenterThe One Tbyte, Lifetime, PC

  • CyberAll convinces me of a lifetime memory!

  • Technology to support the vision:

    • Guarantee that data will live forever!

    • Low cost (to user) cyberization

    • A single index that includes mail, conversations, web accesses, and books!

    • E-book…e-magazines reach critical mass!

    • Telephony and audio capture are needed

    • Photo & video “index serving”

    • More meta-information … Office, photos

    • Lots of GUI to improve ease-of-use

Digital Rights Management… Centerunless MPAA provides a “reasonable” market for media, the whole world will become thieves.

  • Provide a “reasonable” market and industry for renting, owning, viewing, etc. content

  • Make it illegal to record video, police every hard drive, and prosecute users

  • Eliminate the “open video” interface and replace with DVI

  • A 3.5 ft rack that inputs Gigabit Ethernet containing MPEG-2 (and its successors) digital video or IP and provides high-ingestion rate storage for four hours for 150 TV channels plus another 150 movies and generates up to 128 frequency agile 6-MHz carriers carrying a total of 1280 separate 3.85 Mbps MPEG-2 digital streams to individual subscribers.

  • The in-house set top (“transformer”) is 1 chip.

Gordon s very own vision for the evolution of home networks l.jpg
Gordon’s very own Vision for the evolution of Home Networks

  • We’re on a quest for cyberization

  • Three networks need to converge for:

    • computation,

    • communication and

    • entertainment

  • A look inside the home

  • A look at the black boxes

  • Integrating audio, photos, video and TV


Tools l.jpg
Tools Networks

  • Acrobat*, Paperport* 6, Omnipage 10

  • Indexing Service & Enfish (indexer/search)

  • Conversion of DEC 8” floppies

  • “Doubles” to reduce redundancies

    *Microsoft epaper can replace these!
