Tracking Food

I’ve only just discovered that QS has been helpfully uploading videos onto Vimeo. I found one where I  talk about the participant part of participant observation (I’ve been doing research on Quantified Self).  I tried to reflect on my own food tracking practices through the lens of anthropology. Although I don’t remember saying so explicitly, I use the work of Helen Verran and Jane Guyer to unpack how these numbers are generating meaning, beyond the obvious “is it factually true or not.”
