Using data to learn more about yourself everyday

Daytum, by Nicholas Felton, is based on Felton’s annual Feltron report. Data entry is manual and makes heavy use of the Google charting API.


mycrocosm is a project from the MIT Social Media Group that is similar in spirit to Daytum. The main difference is the interface. Users send Twitter-like messages via SMS or email to add to their personal datasets.


Me-trics is described as a Google Analytics for, well, you. It’s sort of an aggregator of all your personal data from applications like RescueTime, Twitter, etc. You can also enter data manually, and then it does some statistical voodoo (which sort of worries me) to find correlations. Not so sure about that part. It will offer an API, however.

Time Management

Let’s face it. We all waste time, and when we do, we feel like a lazy bum. There are plenty of applications that help you keep track of how you spend your minutes.


Most of us have heard of Basecamp, which is used by many for project management. We use it here at Mark.


Start it up, run it in the background, and visit your dashboard to find how many hours you spent watching YouTube last week.

Trixie Tracker

Trixie Tracker is designed to monitor your baby’s habits – poo, pee, sleep, and eating.

Twitter Charts

What are your peak tweeting hours? Find out with Twitter Charts.


Wakoopa is sort of like RescueTime, but I think it’s more about the video games.


You want to live a long and healthy life, don’t you? You better keep track of your bodily functions and what not.


Mon.thly.info is an application for women to keep track of their monthly cycles and stuff.



When is the last time you had sex?



Sleep Tracker



I’m happy. Now I’m sad. Wait no, I’m happy. I’m perplexed. Confused. Crazy. Happy again. Oh life, you are an emotional roller coaster you are.


Record your moods and evaluate over time with Moodstats.


lifemetric is similar to Moodstats, although it sort of has a social component to it too.


How fit are you?


Use Traineo to track what you eat, how you exercise, calories lost, and all that good stuff.



From Garmin, MotionBased lets you upload GPS data and keep track of your runs in the park.


You put something on your shoe, connect it your iPod and you get feedback as you run.


Graph your weight.


Keep track of all your finances in one spot.


Mint, grabs data from your bank, credit cards, and investments.


With all our environmental concerns, we should all be aware of our driving patterns.


Plug CarChip into your car and it automatically records your driving behavior like speed, braking, etc.

My Mile Marker

I know there are a lot of people who write down their mileage and money spent after each gas fillup. My Mile Marker takes that data and helps you make sense of it.
