Self-tracking Principles

  1. Private (for one’s own purposes only)
  2. Communal (sharing data with other self-trackers)
  3. Pushed (encouraged by others)
  4. Imposed (foisted upon people)
  5. Exploited (where people’s personal data are repurposed for the use of others)

Diary Elements

New Design Concept — Applying Diary to Self-tracking



  • Allows people to keep control of the information they want to share
  • Information is only collected when people share it
  • If Diaries are kept by the family, they could re-connect old and young generations, which is an opportunity to help people’s loneliness


  • It still relies on the government posting the location data of Coronavirus patients
  • There needs to be a link to technology in order for this system to work. It can’t purely be analogue.
  • Relies on people sharing their diaries with each other
