LXer: GNOME's Zeitgeist Engine Has Its First Release

Published at LXer:

One of the GNOME projects that's in development that should premiere around the time of GNOME 3.0 is Zeitgeist, which is the system for tracking user activity and events and then logging it, so that later on the user can use the Zeitgeist tool to browse or find events and files on the computer. This project is described by the Zeitgeist developers as, "You worked on a file, but you cannot remember where you saved it? You visited a web page about basketball three days ago, but you cannot find the URL in your browser's history? No problem, this is where Zeitgeist enters the scene...

I don't know about you, but having my own computer track everything I do and log it seems like a waist of resources and extremely scary. With a hacker's ability to get inside computers, do you really want to leave them or anyone else with a gold mine of sensitive information to go after? Instead of Zeitgeist, I recommend you take a course on time management and organization. There problem solved, no computer resources lost, no temptation for hackers and no potentially exposed data. Glad I could help.
