Some really cool insights here on the #QuantifiedSelf  movement in this study released yesterday by +TechnologyAdvice. The study was administered and written up by our very own Managing Editor, +Cameron Graham 

In +VentureBeat 's coverage, they came up with this gem of a headline:

"The main reason you don’t use a health wearable? You’re apathetic and cheap."

Their editorial style is a little less formal than ours, but I'd say that pretty much sums up the results. Click through for a full infographic -- there's a link to download the full study as well. 
We surveyed over 900 U.S. adults to determine the size of the wearable fitness market, and how the healthcare industry can encourage personal tracking.

Nice way to celebrate #nationaldogday  , Desmond Hague, CEO of +Centerplate . Now can we come kick you?
You've heard of Centerplate, wielder of luke-warm and soggy bun hot dogs at most major sporting venues.  You've paid the $12 it takes to get a draft beer which comes inclusive with a cheesy "souvenir" cup made of plastic that likely causes cancer. And...

Story
Tagline
Professional Devil's Advocate, Content Producer/Editor, Researcher, and all-around geek.
Introduction
In my work for TechnologyAdvice, I research, write, and edit content about business-to-business technology solutions. When I'm not geeking out on tech or marketing, you can find me drinking/brewing beer, eating/cooking delicious cuisine, and tending to my garden; as a serial multi-tasker, none of those things are mutually exclusive.

I once voiced God, Satan, Moses, and Pharaoh in the same animated film
