My Quantified Self

We are constantly being measured and quantified not only by others but also more critically by ourselves. By quantifying humanity, one is tempted to objectify it and in Western culture most likely to turn it into property. Soccer players in Europe, for example, are quantified so that they can be easily turned into commodities. Player attributes are calculated, summed, and inputted through algorithms that presume to give them value. We have observed this process extended to human labor in digitized form through HCM software. To follow suit, I provide a snapshot of my quantified-self in this context so that I may be valued in the global workforce and the society in which I live.
