Hulda Emilsdottir and Josh Klein on Tracking Possessions

In this inspiring talk from the recent New York City QS Show&Tell Hulda Emilsdottir and Josh Klein talk about the system Hulda developed to analyze their relationship to their possessions, and then about another system Hulda made for buying clothes based on seasonal usefulness, care-requirements, and compatibility with her other clothes.

    Though I’m only a casual reader of KK’s QS blog, this seemed like a good opportunity for a first comment.
    When Hulda and Josh talk about their system, I’m interested. When they talk about combining it with RFID tags, I am enthused. As Hulda mentions, the barrier is the price of RFID tags.
    I’m no expert in the technology, but I’m very interested in personal use RFID tracking systems. If there is anyone else out there who would also like to see this become a reality, it would be great if we could use the internet to organize ourselves and attract the attention of an innovative company. If you are interested in starting a group or already have started a group that I can join, please e-mail me at
    Have a good one,

    I’m really interested in Hulda’s system for organizing clothes. What weight does she give what? Is there any possibility she would see that as a web app? Offer people the spreadsheet? Have these two thought of writing a book or setting up a website where people could download the spreadsheets?

    Thanks for thinking of this–

    So I did end up making a pretty-ish system for tracking my clothes! =), in case anyone’s got ideas/suggestions/improvements. =)
