Launched in early 2011, the Locker Project is an open source platform that runs on behalf of individuals to pull in and archive all of personal and digital data from across the myriad of web services and devices that make up our data lives. Tweets, photos, videos, click-stream, check-ins, data from real-world sensors like heart monitors, health records, home power consumption, car data and financial transaction histories, and more. Personal applications like visualization tools, personal archiving, health improvements and more explicit and relevant interactions with advertising and deal delivery can be built on this open platform.
Jeremie lives in rural Cascade, Iowa, the town he grew up in, with his wife and three sons.
