Quantified Self is a community of people and ideas, who are convinced that use of hard data is the most effective way of advancing, as opposed to wishful thinking and a cheery outlook.
Librarians and library technology is becoming less involved with the containers of information (e.g. books, CDs) and are evolving towards working directly with the information (data) itself. Data collection, evalutaion, organization and analytics are now part of library work, especially to support evidence-based research.

Hi, I am a librarian who is very interested in using data to improve oneself and one's surroundings. Most recently I was Associate Director of McGill Universty Library, responsible for library technology.
Interesting, knowledgeable, welcoming, fun, maybe even kindred spirits.
