intra

quantified self

Intra is a series of quantified self projects

why

The Intra project began after I started time-tracking. I noticed patterns in my creative output and wondered what factors had an impact on those. So I started tracking things like what I ate, how much sleep I had, and even daily weather conditions

Currently, I’m just collecting data. Over time, I hope to have enough to see patterns emerge and maybe even forecast future creative output given these variables

system

Tracking is done manually with scripts, and data is stored in plaintext. Text files are simple and easy to read and edit when needed

I created small tools and utility scripts for things like summary statistics and data visualisation, such as a component of this wiki that generates the polyline charts in the pages listed below. More details will be added later
