The Quantified Self is a movement to incorporate technology into data acquisition on aspects of a person's daily life in terms of inputs (e.g. food consumed, quality of surrounding air), states (e.g. mood, arousal, blood oxygen levels), and performance (mental and physical).
The movement was started by Wired Magazine editors Gary Wolf and Kevin Kelly in 2007, as "a collaboration of users and tool makers who share[d] an interest in self knowledge through self-tracking". In 2010, Wolf spoke about the movement at TED, and in May 2011 the first international conference was held in Mountain View, California.
The primary methodology of self-quantification is data collection, followed by visualization, cross-referencing and the discovery of correlations.
