  1. experiment sandbox @cjlortie human life data

  2. data associated with human life

  3. work sleep exercise steps

  4. experiment of one trial and error but you can keep

    track and live better
  5. gamification = experimentation

  6. many mechanisms to track and collect data

  7. None
  8. None
  9. quantified self movement

  10. None
  11. None
  12. tracking for many years on paper and digitally mostly to

    explore and manage change
  13. data: https://figshare.com/articles/dataset/Quantified_life/12803105

  14. ~ 3000 days of sampling or 9+ years

  15. simple_date is m/m/d format. year is year listed only. steps

    are total daily steps. mins_asleep is the total time asleep each night. efficiency is the Fitbit estimate sleep efficiency based on total time in bed, total time awake versus sleep, and number of times restless.
  16. experimental design philosophy can reuse existing data but apply and

    explore a causal structure
  17. correlation almost always implies causation

  18. can also use experimental design mindset and augment existing data

    with data that supports a key mental model i.e. climate or world events or life changes
  19. plot ask questions design model observe data reason discover (repeat

    if needed)
  20. manage chance and haphazard processes in life through experimentation
