Damon isn't the typical guest we have here on BlogcastFM. A few weeks ago, when I was looking at the TED Blog,  I came across his book Our Virtual Shadow: Why We Are Obsessed With Documenting Our Lives Online. The book was all about how documenting our lives - which I knew I was something that content creators wrestle with on a daily basis. The implications of his work are quite profound and will cause you to really do some deep thinking. Here are few of the highlights from our chat:
