We live in an age and culture obsessed with tracking and documenting every detail of our lives and then sharing half of those details with everyone else. We use apps that allow us to enter what we eat. We wear devices that track our every movement and tell us how well we sleep at night. Spotify tells the world what songs we are singing, and we willingly let people know where we are through location enabled apps. I suppose we use these numbers, tweets, and status updates to define the boundaries of who we are in this ever more crowded world. We measure and record who we are and what we do in some hope that perhaps all that information will somehow inform us as to where to go and what to do next.
We are looking for answers, but have we even thought about what questions we really need to be asking?
