I’m Joost Plattel, a data strategist. I help organizations and persons develop strategies for data-related questions and opportunities. I create experimental models, data visualizations based on feedback-loops and experiences. The question I try to answer is:

How do we use all the data generated every second and turn it into information, to knowledge and finally wisdom?

I’m the founder of a little startup called Qount.us, a dashboard for companies to gather insights into the health of employees and create a culture around well-being.

Side-projects I am working on are handy mashups that enable you to sync your Kindle to Evernote or explore the possibilities of social data at Meetup. I open-source libraries for API’s like Fitbit, Jawbone and Moves App. And I like to use my personal data as an artist with my twin-brother under the name Thought Kinetics.

If you are interested in Qount.us, a side-project, or strategies for data or The Quantified Self, have a cup of delicious coffee with me!
