I’m Joost Plattel, a data strategist. I help people discover and use data and the Quantified Self. I create experimental models, data visualizations and strategy based on feedback-loops and processes. The question I try to answer is:

How do we use all the data generated every day, minute or hour and turn that to information, to knowledge and finally into wisdom?

I connect API’s, sockets, other data-streams and the physical world in order to create interface to understanding. I bring organisations and people ways to discover value in their data with powerful visualisations and meaningful insights.

Projects I am working on include connecting variables to my sleep or trying to make sense of phone data. I also build handy mashups that enable you to sync your Kindle to Evernote and make libraries for API’s like the Zeo, Fitbit, Jawbone and Moves App. And I like to use my personal data as an artist with my twin under the name Thought Kinetics.

If you are interested in my projects, the power of data or The Quantified Self, have a cup of delicious coffee with me!
