Remote Interviews: Reflecting on Self-Tracking Data

Last week, I wrote a post recruiting self-quantifiers who live in Pittsburgh for face-to-face interviews at Carnegie Mellon University, but not many responded. Thankfully, a QS reader informed me of Skype’s ‘Share Screen’ feature.

Now, I am writing again to recruit participants, but this time the interviews will be remote using Skype’s ‘Share Screen’ feature. The study consists of two interviews (a few weeks apart). In the first interview, I will observe how you explore your data using your personal informatics tool and ask you questions about what you learn from your data.

In the second interview, I will show you different designs of graphs and visualizations and ask you about your thoughts on the designs. Participants will receive a $10 Amazon gift certificate per hour of interview.

If you are interested in participating, please complete the pre-questionnaire (, which has a few questions about the types of information that you keep track. We will select interview participants from those who complete the pre-questionnaire.

If you have questions, please email me at
