Andrew Schaaf on QuantMyLife

September 11, 2011

Here’s a quick video from Andrew Schaaf. He built an open source app for the Mac that logs attention and usage data, including your mouse position and which app is at the front of the stack on your screen. The data is private and stored on your computer. If you’re interested in raw data on, say, how many miles your mouse moves in a year, or how much time you are spending on different tasks, you can grab the app at QuantMyLife. (Filmed at the NY Quantified Self Show&Tell #12 at ApK Media.)
