A. Yourbrainondrugs.net is a scientific and sociological project run by a sociologist and a psychologist.
A. Two things: a website and (soon) an android app
Q. On the website?
A. Currently, it has our blog and will eventually also hold our data and analysis
Q. Android app?
A. We are currently developing an android app that can perform memory, coordination and reaction time tests on smartphone users. it will also collect simple data about drug and alcohol consumption and emotional state. We crunch the numbers and provide personal and networked performance data.
Q. So that’s the data you mentioned above?
A. You got it.
Q. How soon is ‘(soon)’?
A. The initial version will just track alcohol. Alpha testing happens in September 2011, Beta testing will be soon after that.
Q. Tell me more about your analysis?
A. More on this when we come to look at the pilot data.
Q. Tell me more?
A. Start reading the blog from the beginning
Q. That’s not quite the beginning, is it?
A. No, this is an idea I’ve been toying with for years. At last, Android & web 2.0 provide the tools to make it possible. (I hope.)
