Why

Our heads are too small for our minds

Our minds are not limited to what exists in our heads. If you ask me if I know the time, I will answer yes, and then reference my watch. The current knowledge of time does not exist in my head. However, it is so accessible that it is an extension of my mind. We believe that the data you create should be as easily accessible to you.

 

How

Giving you access to the data you create

Remember

Actions you do in the physical world create digital traces. Whenever you check Facebook your browser remembers, when you spend the day at work your phone knows, when you GChat a friend Google remembers, when you’re binge watching your favourite TV show Plex/Netflix knows, when your heart races Fitbit remembers.

Recall

Memair gives you access to the data you create and the ability to easily recall the digital memories you create. Easily recall how often you check facebook, when you are at work, how many hours you spend watching TV, or when your heart races.

Insight

Derive insight from disparate data sources. Discover the GChat conversations that increase your heart rate, understand your Facebook usage patterns, become aware of how much of your week you spend watching Plex/Netflix.

Quantified Self & Biohacking in Media

Most quantified self / biohacking movies & TV shows are dystopian focusing on the possible harmful affects of life logging. We obviously believe that quantifying our selves will improve quality of life however it is useful to acknowledge the fear that is represented in media. Here is a collection of interesting movies and TV shows that feature the possible dangers of self quantifying and biohacking.

FOMO in my hometown

Memair lets you know where you've been, which is wonderful. But quantifying yourself also lets you know where you haven't been. After asking Memair "Where have I been this year" and then zooming in on my hometown, I found lots of areas that I haven't recently explored.

This weekend's challenge is to offset FOMO (fear of missing out) by exploring the recently unexplored.
