Hi everyone!

This is a quick note regarding tonight's meetup.

--- Logistics

We'll be at the new Media Lab building at MIT, which is at 75 Amherst St., Cambridge, MA. We'll be in room 525. If you can't find us, feel free to give me a call or text at[masked]. The meetup will be starting at 7 pm, ending by 9 pm.

We'll have five presenters, the first three of which will be members of Professor Sandy Pentland's Human Dynamics group, who are hosting us at the Media Lab. (Thanks!)? From their site: "We have invented the technology of reality mining, which uses sensor data to extract subtle patterns that predict future human behavior."

--- Tonight's Speakers ---

from the Human Dynamics ( group:

1. Nadav Aharony -- presenting a talk on the "Friends and Family" study, using Android phones to measure the personal and social lives of people in graduate housing communities.

2. Anmol Madan -- will be presenting the group's latest reality mining study, themed around "social exposure."

3. Sandy Pentland -- will be presenting about the broad theme of "Social Signals."

and rounding that out:

4. Daniel Rinehart, with a summary of his use of RescueTime (,) a webapp that helps keep track of where time is going online, used for analyzing personal productivity.

5. And finally, Matt Cornell, presenting his ideas on "The Experiment Driven Life" ( an article he wrote, inspired by QS founder Gary Wolf's New York Times article, The Data-Driven Life. He'll be basing his talk from work he's done on his site "Think, Try, Learn" ( where users are able to post, track, and reflect on personal experimentation.

Hope to see you tonight!
