Introduction to personal metadata

Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of new tools, be it web apps  or gadgets, that help us keep track of the things we do on a daily basis. Wether it be tracking weight, food eating, exercise, sleep, or any of the many of other activities to track.
Personally I have been tracking certain activities for a few years, primarily my diet and exercise. Lately, I’ve been expanding the data that I track and the tools I use to track the data.
As they say you can’t manage what you can’t measure.
This is the beginning of series of posts in which I’m hopping to talk about the tools that I’m using and other tools that are out there to track and manage our actions, or as I call it “personal metadata”.  Brad Feld has had some interesting posts on this subject which he calls human instrumentation, Bryce also has discussed this as well.
Stay tuned to the tag personal metadata for details on the tools I’m using.
