And since the wetware is less than 100% efficient,  the archive would make an excellent backup to see or remember that last little extra  detail you seem to not be sure of.

Think of your day to day memory as the index registry and the data cache as your
full function "total recall" memory.  Perhaps even your  auto agent could do a little behind the scenes linking  and outside data  provisioning to prepare for your future
browsing enjoyment.

In effect your brain would be more efficent because the higher functions would be able to  selectively avoid the information overload of 24/7/365/ad-infinitum  total recall.

For example, I work on flight simulators and sometime pilots claim something looks false or realistic. This might trun into part of the official records of the job, and I don't know if this quite matches what you meant.

Imagine one of these mounted on a firearm such that it showed both the wielder and the aimpoint, and that pulling th trigger recorded both views. How might such a thing affect the gun control debate? Should armed civil servants have such things? Should casino workers? Should everyone?
