Self-tracking is rapidly moving mainstream. This abbreviated presentation is an update of a version posted here last year, and was prepared for health & fitness professionals. More info & links to resources are available at: http://www.caroltorgan.com/track-share-compare/.

This presentation includes 2 videos that illustrate high- and low- tech self-tracking. The 2nd video (at the end) shows the power of self-tracking to provide a narrative of part of a person's life. Enjoy, and I welcome feedback! - Carol
