We wanted to share our recording of an excellent a panel we had on Monday, and invite you to our next one on March 10.
As part of our Keating Memorial Self Research activity, we discussed how to get started with your own self-research, what challenges one might experience, and advice to solve any issues encountered so far. In addition to having some veteran self-researchers, we were happy to have some first-timers join us as well!
Liz Salmi, Katarzyna Wac, Rogier Koning, Steven Kaye, Gary Wolf and Steven Jonas joined Bastian Greshake Tzovaras and Mad Ball to share their experiences on a variety of topics, including how to collect relevant data, how to keep motivated when doing time-intensive active tracking, and how just the act of collecting data can already modify our behavior.

We’re going to have the same format for our community call on March 10. Our topic is “From individual to collective self-research”: How do people translate individual ideas and efforts to work that involves others? This can include shared & re-used methods, tools, and analyses, to aggregating data for collective insight. We’ll invite attendees to participate as a panel of ourselves, and we’ll be recording the conversation to share everyone’s questions and insights with others.
