Wearable technology and apps promise to write our diaries for us. All smartphones measure our movements and location, and many devices do much more. Apps visualize and graph our days using this data that is gathered about us. This presentation will discuss how current automated diaries rewrite our idea of the subject in a digital age, and how they create new regimes of time, where we become subject to the measurements of our machines.
