* Web pages. There are just too many of them in a single day!
Gnome-activity-journal helped here by grouping them in an expandable
item, "N web pages", rather than showing all the crap you visited
during a day. An alternative would be to add an explicit "log this
page" button to Firefox, or something.
One of the things we need to think of soon is the immediacy of the
journal. Having "Windows / Applications / Past Activities" in the
shell's Overview is just too clunky. Seif posted to the list with his
idea to move those three actions to the shell's top panel, thus
replacing the "Activities" button. I quite like that idea; it removes
one level of indirection from the things you do the most, and it gives
you present (windows), past activities (the work you did, the journal)
and future activities which you might do (applications), *right there*
in the main panel.
What about privacy? Maybe certain activities you don't want showing up.. for instance, if you're at a conference you don't want people behind you knowing what you were looking at. That kind of thing?
Respecting "private browsing" mode on browser is one method. There might be other ways to respect that. Domain based filtering as well. Clearly, I don't want my boss to know that I've been busy at www.gnome.org
during work hours and so forth.
