Many great answers to a thread, going to condense them a little here
noa talks about the totally unquantified self. Through ephmerality and necessity they do end up tracking parts of their life, but keeping a low digital footprint is important to them
cblgh has a particularly insightful answer:
> the boundary that determines when to track and when to stop is when the sought course correction has been achieved. afterwards the tools to accomplish corrections exist and can be picked up again if a new course has been decided
ciel speaks about how the resolution of the data is irrelevant to the use it may (or may not) have. They speak about journaling as being more important, and I certainly agree.
