The Quantified Self becomes the Qualified Self and the Exoself

Quotable quotes from the third Quantified Self conference held at Stanford University September 15-16, 2012. 

  • Can I query my shirt or am I limited to consuming the querying that comes packaged in my shirt?
  • Quantified Self enables the constant creation of this thing called the self
  • We think more about our cats/dogs than we do our real pets, our microbiome
  • Information conveyance, not dataviz
  • Quantified emotion and data sensation (haptics)
  • Display of numerical data and graphs are the interface
  • Quantifying is the intermediary step...exosenses (haptics, wearable electronic senses) is really what we want
  • Perpetual data explosion
  • Our mission as Quantified Selves is to discover our mission
