Matthew Cornell on The Experiment-Driven Life
August 20, 2010
Here is a guest post by Matthew Cornell, who gave a presentation last week at The Boston Quantified Self Meetup Group #3 in Cambridge, MA.
These slides are loosely based on my essay on the field of self-tracking and what’s missing: The Experiment-Driven Life. (You might also like my earlier post Attention Data Hounds: What Personal Data Are You Tracking?, which includes An Incomplete Summary of Personal Informatics.)
In it I explain what I think is missing from the self-tracking data movement, why it needs to be part of a personal scientific method, how it makes you happier, and a little about our edison ™ Experimenter’s journal tool to help live everything in life as an experiment.
Give it a look and let me know what you think! It’s my first take, and I’m developing the ideas as I write my book, “Think, Try, Learn: A scientific method for discovering happiness.” Care to join in?
