It's only in the past decade that we've become aware of how much of our lives is recorded. From phone companies to merchants, social networks to employers, everyone's building a record of us―except us. That's changing. Once, recording every aspect of your life might have seemed obsessive. Now, armed with the latest smartphones and comfortable with visualizations and analytics, life-logging is no longer fringe behavior. In this Strata OLC, we'll look at the rapidly growing field of personal analytics. We'll discuss tool stacks for recording lives, and hear surprising stories about what happens when introspection meets technology.
O'Reilly Strata Online is a fast-paced, web-based conference series tackling the impact of a data-driven, always-on world. It combines thorough tutorials, provocative panel discussions, real-world case studies, and deep-dives into technology stacks.
The entire conference will be recorded and made available to attendees free of charge afterwards.
