Ever wondered how we got where we are?

I’ve been meaning to watch this documentary ever since it was up for grabs as a film review for the Loyola Phoenix.

Today, I finally watched it and let me just tell you, I was both impressed and concerned. Legendary internet pioneer, Josh Harris, launched a live experiment in which he selected 100 people, interviewed them, and told them that the participants were to conduct their everyday lives–at Harris’ expense–as they wished. They only catch was that their privacy was literally stripped away from them. These people were under camera surveillance twenty four hours a day for about 30 days. Oddly enough, you find out by the documentary’s end that this is where lots of our social networking, blogging, video blogging practices stemmed from.

I have included a trailer. For your information, there is some swearing and a few butts.

The actual documentary is not edited whatsoever, so just giving you a heads up.
