View Full Version : Life tracking...

07-26-08, 05:06 AM
I've been contemplating writing a web based tool for ADD types to journal physical and mood symptoms throughout the day. The idea is to get some visuals of aggregated data of medication, sleep and other events compared to moods and the ability to focus. Would this be useful for people?

I haven't really seen something so far available that was easy to use and could track things to the extent that I've really been needing personally.

Let's just say that it's kind of easy to forget to keep up the paper journal, etc. Plus your paper journal isn't gonna plot how fast you can do long division against a pharmacokinetic curve, is it?

This sounds like a very good idea. Have you started this? Do you need help?

I could always use help, what did you have in mind?

I love the idea and would be happy to assist in brainstorming on it as well as programming. In addition to an online tool, I would also support some kind of application for tracking this sort of thing, perhaps with latent, bidirectional syncing to the website app.

If you go through with the idea, PM me and I'll be happy to provide any assistance I can! :)

Like an iPhone client? =D

What would be the difference between what you are proposing and

I'm a programmer who'd be willing to do what I can. I'm not sure how much I could devote to this now. Since I posted last, I have started a master's program in software engineering and I work full-time, but I might be able to lend a hand.

I've been drafting notes on a system that "sounds" like yours for quite a while, and I've got the schedule space (and interest of a few 'useful' people), to implement a prototype.

Though I'll probably keep it on hold until I can find someone to collaborate with. I know my strengths/weaknesses ;).
Two projects with another ADHD partner = two large software companies.
Two hundred projects on my own = a very big folder called 'Archived' :rolleyes:

If interested in comparing notes, or collaborating, shoot me a message!

BTW, Check out the (Beta) Google Health and say 'hmmm'...

'Splain please.

The Daytum folks have their own explanation:

Man, I kinda I dunno, forgot that I had posted about this. Difference between daytum? I'm looking to make something much more elaborate. The code shouldn't actually be that bad, but this will be purpose made.

The main thing I'm looking for that is probably unique is multiple clients (aka, iphone) and technical analysis tools of your data. Aka, graphs and lines and stuff.

Also, I like rails...

Check this out:

Its really good for tracking a whole load of symptoms (not just AD/HD) and shows it on a graph, aswell as colleration between how well you slept etc.

I have started doing this on my own with my IPHONE. I created a simple form on Google Docs, that is easy to fill out on the IPhone. You can make any and all questions that you would like. I then fill it out as I remember thru the day, and then the results are all dumped in a Google Docs excel file, which you can then create graphs etc.

I tried which is great too, but did not work too well with the Iphone.
