The world of Qs, data gathering and life logging is still very, very, fragmented to say the least. This fragmentation is also one of the current issues that normal user have that stops them of tracking their behaviors and habits. Indeed, correlation and therefore knowledge, is only possible were multiple data sets are in the same system, and can be correlated and produce information.
In that sense, I had the pleasure to discover three current project at the QS EU conference last week end. Fluxtream (captions above), ZenoBase and Sympho.Me . Fluxtream seems the most advanced and the most “exhaustive one” but ZenoBase is also great, smartly done and seems to work very well. Sympho.Me is still in early stage with no much source of data that can be integrated into the account. I will test them a bit more extensively and provide you a more detailed feedbacks in the coming weeks.
David Andre, from BodyMedia, gave a really interesting talk today at the QSEU13. Here is the key elements with my comments and some copies of slides.
