Tell me EVERYTHING about you: What’s next in #QuantifiedSelf?:

…#clmooc reflection, interrupted. I’m guessing the Quantified Self, besides not having much privacy, may be less inclined to reflect and more restricted in opportunities. Can biometrics measure and identify a reflective state, if indeed the markers are uniform across the population?…
