Sandy Santra on Turning QS Data Into Knowledge

Sandy Santra gives a short, passionate talk below on turning Quantified Self data into knowledge. He tracks his migraines, time alone, happiness, meltdowns, panic attacks, and “zombification.” (I’d like to see a follow-up talk on that last one!) He gave the audience a framework for how to turn their own data into knowledge, for human improvement. UPDATE: Sandy has provided a PDF copy of his document, which you can download here. (Filmed at the NY Quantified Self Show&Tell #11 at Parsons The New School for Design.)

With all the disparate data streams coming out of Quantified Self tools, Stephanie Gerson saw a need to create a tool to bring them all together. In the video below, she presents her project Trackify, a new way for people to find correlations and trends in their data streams. Stephanie also puts out a call for building a Self-Trackers’ Bill of Rights. (Filmed at the NY Quantified Self Show&Tell #11 at Parsons The New School for Design.)
