Are you gathering any personal data?

Yes, I carry a FitBit and with it track miles, steps, stairs, & calories. I also monitor many types of information interactions such as emails sent & received, Twitter volume and followers, and time spent on phone, listening to radio, tv (none); and all books read and movies watched for for 20+ years.

Doing any experiments or analysis?

Yes, I have a project of studying how much time/attention I give to all information sources and tools, and evaluating how much value I perceive in the interaction. Then, shifting time/attention paid towards what things seem higher-value.


I work for HighWire Press, Stanford University, as Sr. Product Manager for Emerging Content. Also reader, writer, library student. More info at Contact me at tim (at) Contact/follow me at @mccormicktim.
