Ernesto Ramirez on Memories and Reflections

September 5, 2011

Ernesto Ramirez strikes again! His recent talk at QS San Diego called Quantified Self on a Budget is one of our most viewed videos. We were lucky enough to have Ernesto come up to San Francisco to share his thoughts on how self-tracking can enhance your memories and help you reflect on your life. He is currently using two tools: 4squareand7yearsago to tell him every morning where he checked in a year ago, and Lifelapse to take pictures every 30 seconds as he goes about his day. Ernesto has started a Visualized Self experiment, creating a History of Ernesto. It’s almost as though self-tracking is a sort of neural prosthesis enhancing our humanity. (Filmed at the Bay Area QS Show&Tell Meetup #19 at Singularity University.)
