My data was a complete bore. I learned nothing I didn't already know or at least have an idea about. It's still an early release. I think it will eventually be a good product, it is from Wolfram. I believe this is but an introduction to personal analytics for Facebook users.

I've looked at my Facebook data on wolfram-alpha -- it wasn't very interesting to me!

Do you create a lot of interesting data online?

What. personal data would you be most likely to fib about in exchange for a reward?

'I tend to think a lot of people would change behavior I'd they realized it was being tracked'

Absolutely, just like we have our private and public self. Specially if a reward is involved, we would want to meet some perceived expectations.

I tend to think a lot of people would change behavior I'd they realized it was being tracked. So would that alter the validity of the data or would it just reshape reality?

Good idea Seth - it will be interesting to see what we can learn from one another.

I guess selling my data would be similiar to having my own reality T.V. show. :)  Would selling my data actually alter my behavior?  I mentioned in another post that I would live to have access to it and see what I would learn about myself. 

I've requested an invintation from Tictrac. Later, if any of you join me, we will have to reflect on what we learn from it together.

Cordell,

Sometimes people are not imaginative about mediums that on the surface appera abstract. Data falls into that category.  It also depends on the person associated with the data.  A person in a casual mood will reveal quite a bit about themselves, but take that same person and place them in an important role - president of the United States, of a major corporation, etc. - and that information is imagined as details which gives an undesirable party an advantage.  It boils down to imagination. Today we can visualize more than what we are use to, but because many people are not tech-driven, there are still basics which can be overlooked.
