30 devices, 30 days.Big data. Personalized medicine. This is the journey to the quantified-self. Check-in here, share this, tweet that, connect one device to another to another. (My weight has been auto-tweeting??)What matters? This project aims to discover the bio data most critical to ourselves and our well-being. Data gives us the building blocks from which we can develop and customize our health, happiness, and lifestyle.Quantified30 is a project at the confluence of art, science and insight. Born from a desire to live better – I will provide what I hope will be useful reviews of new wearable devices, head to head comparisons on devices that track the same metrics, and also draw some useful, and potentially surprising insights that hopefully will inspire you to break old habits, or start fresh ones.Everything that can be counted does not necessarily count; everything that counts cannot necessarily be counted."-Albert EinsteinQuantified30. Data-driven wellness.
