Here’s a paper that I have submitted to Statistical Science. The title is “The Growth of Personal Science: Implications For Statistics” – meaning implications for the field of statistics. It contains many examples so it may help people who want to do it, not just statisticians.

Interesting. I’m not sure I agree with some of the points in your summary, but I haven’t had a chance to read the whole paper. I definitely want to, and will get back to you when I have a chance.

I tried to click the link for the paper but got an error. What is the status of this manuscript? I do research on self-data collection, am interested in reading this. Could you repost a more current link or PM me with the manuscript?
