Gareth MacLeod on Holistic Tracking and Correlations

Gareth MacLeod is a developer/entrepreneur interested in making QS techniques easy to incorporate into daily life. He built an app that sends him text messages to ask about his sleep, mood, romantic encounters, tooth brushing, etc. He then looks for correlations among the different data streams, and even spent 100 hours building a correlation heat map. In the video below, Gareth talks about how to engineer the perfect day, and interesting things he has learned, like if he watches TV before bed, he feels grumpy the next day. (Filmed by the Toronto QS Show&Tell meetup group.)

    If anyone is interested in the app I use to track these metrics, I can give you access if you tweet at me, @garethmacleod, or shoot me an email at gareth.macleod [at] gmail.com.
