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 (http://hd.media.mit.edu/) 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 (http://www.rescuetime.com,) 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" (http://bit.ly/9htKwi)-- 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" (http://edison.thinktrylearn.com/) where users are able to post, track, and reflect on personal experimentation.




Hope to see you tonight!
