Please describe yourself in three words

Fantastibar.

In your words, what is Quantified Self?

A means for regaining personal control over personal data.

Please describe your work or interests and how they relate to Quantified Self

I keep a blog on my QS-related thoughts (http://blog.savageevan.com/), delivered a talk on tracking diet/exercise for dealing with panic attacks (http://quantifiedself.com/2012/07/evan-savage-on-panic-tracking/), and gave a demo of an in-browser tool for visual exploratory data analytics (https://github.com/candu/datafist) at a recent QS meetup.

Are you currently tracking anything? What would you like to learn how to track?

finances (Mint), location (Google Latitude); I used to track alcohol/sugar/caffeine consumption (pen-and-paper), exercise (Fitbit), and mood (Track Your Happiness). Planning to track overall diet (photos, ESM-style mood/stress tracking after meals), loss aversion (not sure how yet...), and more detailed location (hoping to build Skyhook-based Android prototype.) I've also performed untracked experiments with fasting and alcohol abstinence, which have been equally instructive :)

Introduction

My CV (http://cv.savagee...­) and blog (http://blog.savag...­) do a better job of that, but in a nutshell: I'm a software engineer by trade, an explorer/traveller at heart.
