    I left eBay last June to focus on my own project in the nutrition and health space. I am now at the 6 month mark—as good a time as any to have a brief look back.

  3. Nutrition, Quantified Self, and Machine Learning
    I have been tracking what I eat since September 2013. 22 months and counting. More than 3,000 entries. 230 espressos. Throughout that process, I learned a ton about what works and what doesn't when it comes to logging food.
