The joy of Quantified Self (video interview)

Monday, May 13, 2013

I've been in Amsterdam, The Netherlands this weekend (11-12 May 2013) on the Quantified Self conference. It was great - I learned and experienced so much. I probably will unfold it in another post.

I had the chance to have a video interview at the conference, it's posted on my own website, I link it to here. I would be interested in your feedback. And it's also a chance to see me sort of "in real life". It's 14 minutes, max resolution is 720p (HD).

What is evoked in you?
How do you like it?
Any advice for me based on your experience?

Thanks a lot!

    I read the article of Quantified Self, and watched your video. It was very interesting and showed me how much more I could be tracking, things I tracked a long time ago and gave up on because I was too busy going to school, raising five children, etc. I used to track my dreams, and I remember it helped me figure out why/when I was stressed.
I track most of my food, and my exercise but I'm not consistent enough. I started tracking flossing my teeth, but did not stick to it. So now at the beginning of a new week, I'm going to find a little note pad and set it up so that I can look at what I'm tracking. That way when I'm away from my computer I'm still tracking my food/calories and exercise.

I liked you blog & video, it was motivating and you incorporated good examples. It evoked a desire to do better for myself. Keep on doing these kind of motivational videos.

    I took a look at your website and thought it was very inspiring,
I think it's really important to stress that tracking is key and that you don't need super hig tech gadgets to do it.
So you track your dreams too?

    FYI, the link didn't work - I did copy/paste and was able to get the interview. . .no video but the audio was the important part.

What is evoked in you?

Curiosity and excitement. Already a 'tracker', this hi-lited areas I hadn't thought to track.

How do you like it?

I enjoyed listening; you were asked about the benefits and as you responded, the words "self-awareness" kept popping into my head. Possibly even more important than the various health aspects is knowing oneself.

Any feedback, suggestion?

First, thanks for spreading this knowledge to others - I had never before heard of this movement as a movement.
Second, if not for my recent involvement in the 5% Spring Into Summer Challenge (which group is VERY difficult to learn about), I would have totally missed to learn of QS – is there some way to generate more general exposure to the Spark community on this subject? I’m sure many peeps could benefit and would appreciate it.

Thank you for taking the time to raise this subject in your post, Dolly

    It was very interesting. I hadn't heard the term "Quantified Self" before. It intrigues me. I like numbers which is probably why I like tracking food, water, exercise etc. I am just learning about bio-hacking, which is similar,I think. Thank you for the blog.
