Hi, I'm Bastian!

It occurred to me that I should also probably introduce myself instead of just starting the topic :joy:

So Hi, I’m Bastian! I’ve been tracking data about myself for around eight years now, going back to early 2012 when I got my first Fitbit. At the same time I have to admit that I haven’t done any ‘proper’ self-research on myself. Instead I have largely focused on post-hoc data analyses of the data I’ve collected over the years, without any particular hypothesis I wanted to test in many cases. Among others, data I’ve looked into are physical activity, geolocations, social media usage, texting behaviour, sleep quality, … You can find some examples of those on my blog, as well as in the personal data notebooks of Open Humans.

I’m looking forward to trying a more experimental setup to data collection now!
