The 21st century was launched with the Web 2.0 tools and the blogs leading the new era, mostly functioning as daily diaries, facilitating us taking snapshots of our lives. Such co-weaving the present precious moments and memories using multimedia creates traces of our digital Selves in time, together creating the magnificent web. Can we predict our future looking back over our backs and change our reality? In what ways can we identify such Self Reflection meaningful moments? Massive data analysis may now provide tools to ourselves and students to trace back and identify behaviours in order to re-create our present,predict, change trajectories and transform our future as individual, community members and human beings. The rise of the Semantic Web can provide us with the key to identify our wrongs and thus opening us the gate to immortality.
