My main opensource project is called LifestyleLinking. Describing what it means has proven difficult over the years, half due to my poor explaination of it and half because of it visionary nature back when it started. But now the Quantified Self movement and BIG data have brought a context to explain it better. What is being built is a Self Engine. What is a self engine? We all know a search engine brings back results based on keyword inputs, a self engine makes suggestions on information to ‘consume’ based on the authoring of your life. Life captured by web publishing tools, to sensors to your very own DNA. A self engine terms has be used by the folks at Wolframalpha. It think this term will become more common in use as hardware sensors explode in daily life.
Suggestions will ultimately be integrated to make future simulations that can be passed to the make tools to achieve the desired outcomes.
