About Follow the Data
This blog is meant to be a kind of note pad for a couple of guys who want to stay in touch with emerging trends loosely centered around how data from all imaginable kinds of sources are increasingly being collected and analyzed. This is manifested in (partly overlapping) concepts like reality mining (collecting everyday, real-world data through e.g. mobile phones or smart sensors), self-tracking (measuring aspects of your own life, often by monitoring various physiological parameters) and personalized medicine (using individual-based data to improve disease prevention or therapeutical outcomes.)
We also hope to write about good old data analysis, data mining and programming. Note that we are not claiming to be experts or even especially knowledgeable about the things we cover!
