glogger - Computer Definition
(cyborG LOGGER) A person who streams live video or repetitive stills from a wearable camera to a Web site. Numerous types and sizes of cameras, computers and wireless systems were stitched together over the years to create wearable cameras; however, today's gloggers can use tiny Webcams and minuscule computers as well as download an application from www.glogger.mobi that lets them glog their daily life from their camera phone. Also called "lifecasting," "lifeglogging," "lifeblogging," "lifelogging," "personal casting" and "mobile blogging" (see moblogging), there are tens of thousands of gloggers worldwide. See souveillance. Steve Mann - The First Glogger In the late 1970s, Steve Mann was the first person to transmit his daily view of the world in real time to the Internet. Later, as a professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Toronto, Mann was instrumental in creating the predominant site for glogger streaming as well as developing wearable cameras at the university's EyeTap Personal Imaging Lab.
