This video and talk are from 2013 and 2014 and A LOT has changed between now and then. Most of this data is now antiquated and there's been a rapid change in technology. I was really excited to learn about how trackers of today can be used to help clients, but I was bummed when I found all the research cited is from 6+ years ago. There's so much more we could have learned with all the development in this space.
Extremely outdated. To much time devoted to questions.
