Existence as a Platform - Where Quantified Self meets Internet of Things


Published on


Media and Interviews 2013: (Wired, TechCrunch, Financial Times, NPR, Bloomberg TV)

The devices, apps, sensors, and services we use everyday allow our data exhaust to be manipulated into a reality. I believe we have the ability to remake reality, i believe this because I live not an augmented data driven life, but an assisted data driven existence.

This presentation is the result of two years of research and methods on my personal data, and the future of analytics and a new development platform based in reality. In addition, I will release a short form video and a video tutorial on using tools to collect your data. Thanks for all the kind support. Here's a fun peek at the concepts.
