Are you doing any self tracking these days?

Yes. I write on daily, with subjective and and a few objective measures. Since the new year I've been running a script that takes a webcam and screenshot every half hour, giving a nice mosaic of when I'm on my computer and the sorts of things I work on. Years ago I was involved with AttentionTrust and wrote the AttentionRecorder, which did self-recording of clickstreams.

What QS topics interest you most?

General self-discovery through tracking. And tracking to keep me working towards the goals in my life. More recently, digging into what one can learn from historic tracking. E.g. what can I learn about my parents or grantparents from the letters they wrote; from the stream of photos and documents? I'd love to give a talk sometime about what I've learned.


Hi! I'm Stan. Sometime startup tech CTO guy, but most recently coming from Berlin where I was doing fun projects and working on a book. I have a large ongoing project that allows my family to organize our massive archive of photos and documents.
