I’m Joost Plattel, a data strategist. I help people discover and use the Quantified Self. It’s easy for me to create experimental models based on feedback-loops or processes. The question I try to answer is:
How do we use all the data and information generated every day, minute or hour?
I connect API’s, sockets, other data-streams and the physical world in order to create interface to knowledge. I bring organisations and people ways to discover value in their data with powerful visualisations and meaningful insights.
Projects I am working on include dynamic infographics for the OV-chipkaart, connecting variables to my sleep and publicly logging caloric intake and burn. I also build handy mashups that enable you to sync your Kindle to Evernote and make libraries for API’s like the Zeo. And I like to use my personal data as an artist together with my brother under the name Hoofdbeelden.
If you are interested in my projects or The Quantified Self, have a cup of coffee with me!
