Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - The Quantified Self, Identity, and Value

« Starting | Main | Create Demand for Your Content »


What I want: the analytics tools that can turn lifestreaming into the quantified self analysis that can change my life. Right now the quantified self tools take a lot of effort to record my actions, and I have to think ahead of time what I want to track. The overhead to create the data precludes my activity.

But once it's easy to capture that data, or it happens without me even thinking about it, then the quantified self can be much easier to achieve. That's what I want.

I did, too ;-) Feeling sooo much better, you have no idea. Like a new person.

I'm surprised there aren't more opinions about this topic, with all the opinions floating around online ;-)

Ethics are not really popular at the moment. They do catch up with people, eventually, though.
