Fabio Sergio at a TED Salon held in London on September 21st 2009.

What happens to our sense of self and to our behaviors when technology can extend and enhance our ability to sense and make sense of what's around us?
What happens when our nervous system ceases to be limited by the boundaries of our body, and extends into an artificial neural network of sorts we currently call the Internet?
What happens when our fallible memory is supported by tools that never forget our actions and decisions, tracked over extended periods of time?

There is something brewing at the intersection of design, technology and digitally-mediated social interactions that promises to reveal and make manifest the invisible cause-and-effect loops that tie our perceptions to our decisions and to our actions.
The result of giving visible and actionable substance to our otherwise invisible behavioral patterns will be a raised level of awareness about those very patterns, and thus an ability to reflect upon and ultimately change them, changing the world in return.
