Could self-tracking be the future of health?

from h+ Magazine:

This September Bell and Gemmell released a book called Total Recall: How the E-Memory Revolution Will Change Everything. In it, they talk about the future implications of being able to remember everything about your life in extraordinary detail.

Bell proposes that a “continuous digital diary or e-memory” that integrates digital recording devices, memory storage and search engines will fundamentally “change what it means to be human.”

Their work includes research into memory, work, health, learning, and immortality.

[…] Here are some scenarios that point to a fundamental shift in healthcare coming in the near future:

  1. Self-Organized Clinical Trials
  2. Streaming, Ubiquitous Biosensors
  3. Analytics for Your Health
