QuantifiedSelf A Mega Trend or just a fad @harscoat Disclaimer: I am no official speaker of the QS group,  just a very interested amateur.  I myself track with “Chocolate method” ;)
Agenda Intro QS: a fad or emerging power trend? General pb Context QS community Personal Informatics Issues Our proposal… !! I thank in advance the people who share publicly their work it’s THEIR copyrighted material always reference to them when you can to say thank you
@harscoat – Denis  /  Hello! Father & 39 = soon 40
" Words, words, words "  (Hamlet, 2.2.191) The web today is  « bavard »  as we say in french blogs Twitter Facebook Politics Advertising/marketing New years resolutions Words (vs evidence based methods) = Blah blah blah…  !!!
My personal pain  = Achieving measurable goals Getting 40… it is not time to talk,  But time to achieve goals & leave sthg behind: Eg. Saving money to buy a house Writing a book Spend quality time with family …  and also Drinking enough water to not have tendinites Make pushups to keep fit even if traveling To  achieve ! Leave sthg concrete/objective behind
No BS = numbers!
We need to Focus on numbers What matters are your numbers – and the value they indirectly create
From any which way Numbers 9123235262 # Sales expenses Heart rate / blood pressure Miles running Lines of code Pages for  my book Money $ Loosing weight Concentration Flows Cigarettes/beer… per day Hours of practice Series of  push-ups Vaccines against Malaria
Even Charities! Btw go & give to Charity:Water !!
Massive ZeitGeist Concurrent waves: new  mobile  tools can unlock productivity Context:  The underachiever syndrome – no superman GTD blogs  life hacking – Seinfeld chain Data are available  SENSORS  revolution Numbers driven: Metrics kissmetrics, Salesforce, lean startup... 10k hours  rule – Deliberate Practice Statistics visualization Accountability  = precise numbered goals
Frog Design for Nike
 
It is a big big trend It is a necessity accountability achieve By NUMBERS 2009! =ok Recent
Those are BHAGs that have to be  measured with  numbers
Quantified Self community – SF, USA Mouvement founded by Kevin Kelly  ( founding exec. editor Wired )  Quantified Self is a collaboration of  users and tool makers  around self-tracking.   Kevin Kelly  and  Gary Wolf  maintain and moderate the blog +  authors  includes Alexandra Carmichael ,  Joe Betts-Lacroix ,  Steve Dean ,  Robin Barooah ,  Mike Kirkwood ,  Ian Li ,  Rajiv Mehta , and  Chris Finlay .  monthly meet up which started in the  San Francisco Bay Area , but local chapters are springing up  all over the world . Kevin Kelly Gary Wolf Alexandra Carmichael
 
Today’s offering… already plethorus The reference ressource on all tools: http://personalinformatics.org/tools Famous: Nike+ (Frog Design) miCoach (Adidas) Curetogether Getupandmove.me Runkeeper (2,5 M members) But also Mint for finance  HealthSeeker Dailyburn acquired … Take aways: Hardware Software For any niche of number producing activities
 
$ Acquired! $ Acquired! One of the most interesting offering out there. Why? * Simplicity * Behavior programming:    “ if” you do x “then” I do y

Among the issues
 
 
Other issue:  Representation Visualization
 
 
 
THE PROBLEM:   It is tough
splash
@accarmichael  40 A DAY !!!  Chapeau !
Alexandra Curetogether Founder & well known contributor to the QS movement explains I don't need data to tell me that And I don't need to punish myself anymore Will I ever track again? Yes, probably For a specific goal or experiment Or to observe a pattern I'll try to keep an objective, non-judging eye But then I'll stop  When I've seen what I needed to see And learned what I wanted to learn Like any tool Self-tracking can be used for benefit or harm I won't let it Be an instrument of self-torture Any. More.  Tracking can be a monk discipline
We Still think QS holds! Numbers are objective evidence based They speak as universal language PS: Alexandra Carmichael is now Director of QSelf blog
& we have a sthg to propose you It is called Quantter: starting today with you  #BCBS10 I have a questionnaire !  I am very open! And guarantee I will listen all your remarks and critics
Value at the end of the day That a children can learn by evidence based examples that: nothing great was achieved without big repetitive numbers of daily simple tedious focused tasks little numbers with regularity are much superior force than big 1time splash numbers  (even for becoming a world class rapper) Talent is overrated! Don’t wait for magical inspiration, genes or genius, « Fleissig sein »  (as said in german)
Thank you @harscoat [email_address]   Numbers with a Purpose

  • 42. Alexandra Curetogether Founder & well known contributor to the QS movement explains I don't need data to tell me that And I don't need to punish myself anymore Will I ever track again? Yes, probably For a specific goal or experiment Or to observe a pattern I'll try to keep an objective, non-judging eye But then I'll stop  When I've seen what I needed to see And learned what I wanted to learn Like any tool Self-tracking can be used for benefit or harm I won't let it Be an instrument of self-torture Any. More. Tracking can be a monk discipline
  • 43. We Still think QS holds! Numbers are objective evidence based They speak as universal language PS: Alexandra Carmichael is now Director of QSelf blog
  • 44. & we have a sthg to propose you It is called Quantter: starting today with you #BCBS10 I have a questionnaire ! I am very open! And guarantee I will listen all your remarks and critics
  • 45. Value at the end of the day That a children can learn by evidence based examples that: nothing great was achieved without big repetitive numbers of daily simple tedious focused tasks little numbers with regularity are much superior force than big 1time splash numbers (even for becoming a world class rapper) Talent is overrated! Don’t wait for magical inspiration, genes or genius, « Fleissig sein » (as said in german)
