Paul Abramson MDPaul Abramson, M.D. is a medical doctor with an active private practice in San Francisco (http://mydoctorsf, and also a former electrical engineer and programmer.  He has been self-tracking for health and greater awareness for many years, both with technological tools and through Vipassana (mindfulness) meditation.

Self tracking has been popularized in part through the Quantified Self (http://quantifiedself community, bringing together a wide variety of individuals fascinated by the intersection of self-tracking, technology, health, and mindfulness.  This has brought up the issue of a “cultural mismatch” between empowered, self-tracking individuals and the conventional culture of doctors and medicine.

This blog aims to explore the intersection between the “Quanter” and the “Doctor,” realizing that each of these labels encompasses a wide variety of individuals, attitudes, and competencies.

We welcome feedback and interaction.
