This is the short presentation I gave at The Boston Quantified Self Meetup Group #3 in Cambridge, MA: http://www.meetup.com/bostonQS/calendar/14132216/ In it I explain what I think is missing from the self-tracking data movement, why it needs to be part of a personal scientific method, how it makes you happier, and a little about our edison (tm) Experimenter's journal tool to help live everything in life as an experiment: http://edison.thinktrylearn.com/ Give it a look and let me know what you think! It's my first take, and I'm developing the ideas as I write my book, "Think, Try, Learn: A scientific method for discovering happiness." I'm at http://matthewcornell.org/contact.html You might also enjoy my essay on the field of self-tracking and what's missing: The Experiment-Driven Life (http://www.matthewcornell.org/2010/06/the-experiment-driven-life.html) and my post Attention Data Hounds: What Personal Data Are You Tracking? (including my An Incomplete Summary of Personal Informatics): http://matthewcornell.org/2009/06/attention-data-hounds-what-personal-data-are-you-tracking.html
