Remko Siemerink on Mood and Music

Remko Siemerink tells his personal story of health insights through accidental lifelogging. He has bipolar disorder, and has been using last.fm over the past 7 years to track his music listening and compare it with his friends’ music patterns. He talks about insights he has gained using various tools that make use of last.fm’s API. For example, Remko discovered a pattern of listening intensely when he’s feeling good, and not listening to music when he is feeling depressed, usually in the summer. He also suggests it would be great to have a similar service for groceries, so you could correlate your mood with foods you eat. Watch his engaging story below. (Filmed at Amsterdam QS Show&Tell #3.)
