Cyborglogging is the process of making so called ‘glogs, short for Cyborg logs. ‘glogs differ from normal blogs in that they are not only a simple text and pictures diary of its author, but that they heavily employ digital recording technology to record, share and stream everything the user does, hears or see in real-time. In fact, the user is not required, or shouldn’t be, to prompt such recording manually.

Steve Mann, who coined this term and who has been glogging for several decades now, calls it the “stream-of-deconsciousness”, because no conscious thought should be required but it does not mean the user is unconscious either. Mann believes that this could not only server for amusement, but it can also serve as a visual memory prosthetic or otherwise help cognitively impaired users.
