We’ve recently been doing a number of interviews on the Quantified Self, the trend of capturing behavioral and body data for analysis and sharing. One of the questions that keeps popping up in these interviews and everyday conversations alike is: Where will this lead down the road? In other words, how will our life change if we continue on this path?
It’s a loaded question of course, and has many aspects – of societal change, the perception of the self, business models, privacy, ownership and control, just to name a few.
So I’m going to engage in a little speculation and write a scenario of an everyday scene. Please think of it as playful exploration, a thought experiment rather than full-blown forecasting scenarios or predictions.
