Excerpt
------------

Last week, we blogged about Larry Smarr's efforts to quantify his own
health.
Turns out Larry is speaking out today, in his own words, as part of a
front-page
profile on the front page of The San Diego Tribune: "Quantified health, to
me,
means tracking data about your body -- as simple as weighing yourself on a
scale
once a day to as complicated as wearing a device at night to measure every
30
seconds your sleep state...  "The reason you do this -- you modify your
behavior. And it's the same thing as you drive your car. You look at the
speedometer, and if it's a 60-mile-per-hour zone, you try to stay under 60.
"And so this idea of bio-feedback altering your behavior so that you can
get a
desired goal is why people quantify themselves..." Check out the full
two-minute
video after the jump...
