Gary’s Yi-Tan Podcast

Just released – Gary Wolf’s podcast with Jerry Michalski and Pip Coburn of the Yi-Tan Technology Community. Here’s the description, and the audio below:

We’ve talked about Participatory Medicine and DIY in various ways,
but we’ve only scratched the surface of what people are starting to do
by collecting and sharing their health-related information.

If you read Gary Wolf‘s recent New York Times Magazine cover
article, The Data-Driven Life, you’ll enjoy this call. He
and Kevin Kelly recently started the multiparty blog The Quantified
Self
, where they (and Alexandra Carmichael, who just joined the fray)
are describing the many facets of QS.

With Gary, let’s discuss:

  • What is QS? Your favorite examples? Will everyone call it QS?
  • Why is it taking off now? What sectors will it affect most?
  • What dangers lurk in QS?
  • What’s the best thing that QS enthusiasts might do to advance the
    discussion?
