Quantified Self Guide

This is a volunteer project by people who regularly attend Quantified Self meetups. It's an attempt to gather information about tools and software that people use to measure themselves.

If you haven't followed the trend,self-measurement is rapidly taking its place in wellness, fitness and health-care programs. Being rigorously aware of how you are doing produces amazing results.

It's coming to an HR Department near you. Dig in.
