The Quantified, Qualified and Connected Self

Jenny Connected

Stephen has written: We were the client, we were the product – are we, at last, the content? My point at the time was that the ethos of self-knowledge through numbers does very little for me personally. So obviously things like personal journals would fall into this category.
