Abstract

Selfies, blogs and lifelogging devices help us understand ourselves, building on long histories of written, visual and quantitative modes of self-representations. This book uses examples to explore the balance between using technology to see ourselves and allowing our machines to tell us who we are.

Keywords: selfies, self-representation, social media, blogs, wearable computing, self-tracking, quantified self
