My Data

A while ago, I made a decision to make some of my personal self-tracking data available to public. On this page, you will find all released data sets along with the corresponding data dictionaries. You are welcome to use my data for non-commercial purposes, provided that you list my blog as a reference. I will also be more than happy to post a link here to any projects (visualization, analysis, etc.) that used my data (just drop me a line).

One Response to My Data

  1. I’m a science writer and I’m working on a radio piece. I’d like to profile you and set up the piece as a day in the life of a body hacker. I’d like to go into both the technology that you use as well as your motivation to analyze your own data. Please let me know if you would talk to me. Thank you for your time.
