Constructing A Quantified Self
Gary Wolf looks at the world of lifehackers and time trackers.
Writing for the New York Times Magazine, Gary Wolf describes how our behavior is changing as electronics allow us to monitor and report on our day to day activity. Wolf says that previously we would have had to note everything down on paper and that an activity such as meticulously recording every action and reaction of personal life in a diary would have been seen as madness.
Now, however, data records our health, physical activity, food-intake and more and more people are using that data to make decisions on their day to day life.
