We are a group of researchers at Lancaster University working on a project called ‘Qualified Selves’. As part of this work, are looking to talk to people in the North-West of England and surrounding areas, who actively manage large amounts of personal data. These conversations will help guide the development of innovative tools that can afford users a new insights into their lives in ways that add real value.
To help us understand the current processes involved with accumulating data, we would love to talk to how you use existing applications and services to collect, store, organise and edit it, and how you use this data. We would like to know how you make sense of it and what frustrations you experience. In short, we want to learn from your expertise as data collectors, and learn what makes data collection worthwhile to you.
If you would like to talk to us, or for more information please contact Georgia Newmarch at firstname.lastname@example.org or 07761329889.
