Go track yourself
Are you tired of being hunted down by marketers following your digital crumb-trail?
If the answer to that question is yes, you might want to take an interest in a panel called Getting Personal With Data: How Users Get Control — And What They Do With It. It's happening Tuesday morning at 9:30am (U.S. Eastern time) at Harvard Law School. I'll be moderating it, and the panelists are four very cool people, each working (one way or another) in the fields of self-tracking and personal informatics.
If the tech gods are with us, there will be a live stream I'll add to this post here. If not, you can always show up if you're local. It's free. (It might help us get a headcount, however, if you register here.)
Meanwhile, here are a bunch of links I'm posting to help all of us prepare.

Please add more in the comments below. I am especially interested in open source efforts. If code is already out there, please point to it.
Meanwhile, hope to see some of ya'll on Tuesday.
