Quantified Year: 365 Days of Tracking Everything


365 days. Dozens of devices, applications, blood draws, genetic tests and cutting edge health technologies. So why would anyone voluntarily commit to such a high-maintenance, tedious and occasionally painful lifestyle? I wanted to understand more about my health in general, help manage my own chronic condition, quantify the consequences of the choices I made, and stay on the front lines of the digital health movement as part of Rock Health. So whether you're interested in the quantified self movement generally, the coolest QS gear out there, the future of digital health and how to get involved, or even how I maintained this crazy lifestyle and what I learned, you're covered.
