The Quantified Self: self-knowledge through self-tracking. What does that mean? Check out this 5 minute TED talk
We may all be participating whether we know it or not in a movement called "the quantified self." How many of us use apps or wear devices to track our eating habits, exercise, sleep, other health indicators such as blood pressure and external factors such as air quality? Have you had your genome sequenced? Might you want to quantify your baby's naps and nappy changes?

Join #medlibs on Twitter during this chat where we will discuss this trend, devices and apps of interest, and potential concerns and benefits of quantifying yourself!
