With the increase of mobile technology and applications, we have also witnessed an increase in data tracking and the “quantified self” trend. Put simply, the “quantified self” involves associating metrics with personal tracked information. There are food logs used to track one’s diet, applications that track running/walking activity, and wearable hardware that tracks other physical activities. SiliconANGLE has covered several of these trackers (you can find some of them here, here, and here.) But what, if any, are the downsides to this tracking and self-quantifying trend?
