As personal informatics tools grow in number, interpretation and interoperability of data will become increasingly important. In this paper, we share insights from our development of Estrellita, a medical tracking system for high-risk infants, and our ongoing research in the area of social media. We highlight three challenges relevant to the area of personal informatics: determining context, assumptions around “personal” use, and the social implications of representation.
