This is my presentation for The Guardian Activate Summit (http://www.theguardian.com/media-network/2013/sep/04/activate-new-york-programme-2013), to be performed as a country song while accompanied by guitar and harmonica. Who wouldn't do a song about Big Data with a harmonica? Just call me Minnie Pearl Jam.

Be Sensor-tive (my talk for the Guardian Activate Summit) Be Sensor-tive (my talk for the Guardian Activate Summit) Presentation Transcript

  • Be Sensortive John C. Havens Founder, The H(app)athon Project @johnchavens
  • About two years ago, I lost my Daddy.
  • I had time to think, “What is the Measure of my Life?”
  • Social Influence / Money (These things? No!)
  • For the answers, that I seeked, since I‟m a self-professin‟ geek, I said…
  • I‟m going to compare Quantified Self data, where people are trying to optimize their physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing or “Little Data” + PLUS +
  • ….Data from the Internet of Things, where SENSORS measure information about our lives we‟re not even aware of… + PLUS +
  • …metrics from what are called Happiness Indicators, like Bhutan‟s Gross National Happiness, that measure both the quantitative and qualitative wellbeing of an entire population.
  • I‟m going to compare Quantified Self data, where people are trying to optimize their physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing or “Little Data” with data from the Internet of Things, where SENSORS measure information about our lives we‟re not even aware of PLUS metrics from what are called Happiness Indicators, like Bhutan‟s Gross National Happiness, that measure both the quantitative and qualitative wellbeing of an ENTIRE POPULATION.
  • QUANTIFED SELF + THE INTERNET OF THINGS + HAPPINESS INDICATORS
  • A Hackathon for Happiness
  • Path –to-Purpose Reflect Optimize Purpose
  • In your smartphone, you‟ve got a bunch of sensors.
  • Like GPS, guiding your life on where to go.
  • Or touch screen data that reveals…
  • The passive news „bout how you feel.
  • Smartphones know more „bout you than you may know.
  • That‟s why we‟ve got to….
  • (Chorus). Be sensortive, be sensortive. When using technologies so new. When we‟re measuring our lives, let‟s make connections quantified. Track unto others as you‟d have tracked to you.
  • People say, “How can you measure being happy?”
  • But we‟re not focusing on mood, if that‟s what you mean.
  • Our tagline is, “Connecting Happiness to Action.”
  • Turns out ALTRUISM elevates your dopamine.
  • So instead of just tracking purchases and profits.
  • Let‟s measure the meaning in our lives.
  • When it‟s PURPOSE we pursue, and compassion‟s what we do.
  • We‟ll change the world, and make LOVING quantified.
  • (Chorus). Be sensortive, be sensortive. When using technologies so new. When we‟re measuring our lives, let‟s make connections quantified. Track unto others as you‟d have tracked to you.
  • (Chorus). Be sensortive, be sensortive. When using technologies so new. When we‟re measuring our lives, let‟s make connections quantified. Track unto others as you‟d have tracked to you.
