Howdy All,

I never knew how interesting tracking quantitative data on myself could be. Although before this class, I was never concerned with this data, it has kind of become an obsession of mine in a short time. Some of the apps I look forward to using are…

Daytum seems like a fun way to track multiple things about the self. It will be a challenge to update constantly about myself into forms, but the option to track multiple categories of data could be beneficial and interesting to track.

I’m really interested in this app from the stand point of self sleeping curiosity. I’m pretty sure that my sleep schedule has been out-of-whack since last semester, and it would be great to see data on it to improve myself.

I absolutely can not wait to use the fitbit. The notion of a simple wrist band to automatically update data on my health is very intriguing to me. Since the start of using the Nike Fuel Band a week ago in order to track steps/cals/fuels, it has become an extension of myself. It now feels slightly weird to take it off. Almost like my wrist is missing a piece of it. Since fitbit will be tracking even more data, I look forward to it’s possibilities!

Almost everyone uses Facebook, especially me (more than I like sometimes). I find it interesting to track and look back at statuses from months/ years past, and reliving the data. Its almost like a pandoras box of memories, emotions, facts, or jokes. I may try to use facebook in my Self-Quantification for extra personalization.
