Quantified Self London Show&Tell #25

  • Mar 31, 2014 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We are back at Wayra, this time thanks to Joe Leese of runnit who kindly agreed to be our Wayra host. 

----

Last January we have started to invite a voluntary contribution of £3 at the door. This is to cover incidental and minor costs, provide refreshments once the funds accumulate sufficiently and to have a reserve in emergency when our usual, so far free venue, is not available and we need to look elsewhere. If you can't pay, that's ok. If you can, many thanks, it will help us to keep the meetups going and also make them better.

A London QS meetup consists a mixture of socialising and being able to talk to others and Show & Tell where people present or simply talk for 10-15 mins about their experience and experiments with self-tracking, quantifying and self-hacking whether it involves devices, applications or not. (Please read the guidelines for speakers and presenters below.)

This talks part lasts till about 8.30pm. We then move to a nearby pub, which is an essential and integral part of the meetup, as important as the first 'Show & Tell' one. If you can join us, I very much encourage you to do so. Not only it's always good fun, the conversations are equally interesting. The nearest pub is the Fox, which also has decent food, so we'll head there right after the meetup.

Guidelines for presenters & speakers at London QS meetups:

Do let me know if you would like to do a short talk, 10-15 mins. Personal perspective on your experience with data gathering, self-tracking or analysis is important. Simple '3rd party' presentations about devices or applications not always welcome. If you want to talk about a product or service, feel free to do so as long as it is from a personal perspective - covering how you personally have used it, for how long, what you have learnt, what data you have gathered and how you have benefited etc. If you haven't used a device or application personally but still want to talk about it, you can do so after attending a London QS meetup at least once before you present. This is because we assume (rightly or wrongly) that having met the people in the community and seen how the meetup works, it makes it harder to subject us to commercial and marketing pitches. One can but hope.

Important note on logistics:

There is usually someone checking names from the list of attendees at the entrance. Please make sure you stop to do that and then proceed to the space where meetup takes place. I usually try to be around by about 6pm.

We do try to start on time, though I understand work and London travel can interfere with that. We always wait a few minutes if it looks like most people haven't made it yet. If you know you are going to be late and get the chance, you can text me on my mobile: 07876 757129. Thank you.

Look forward to seeing you at the next meetup.

    Really enjoyed the talks last night - thanks to the speakers and Adriana for organising. Is there any plans to make the slides public online?

    So sorry I can't get away from the university. I was hoping to recruit more people to my study of everyday memory failures tonight - as presented a couple of meetings ago. If anyone is interested please contact me, or have a look at http://mymemory.org.uk/

    Our amazing videographer, Ken Snyder, can't make it to the meetup on Monday so I was wondering if there is anyone willing to take on a task of recording the talks. Anything even just audio would be great and much appreciated. Please let me know at [masked]. Many thanks.

    Interesting article in today's FT by Evgeny Morozov: "Silicon Valley is turning our lives into an asset class"

    Maybe a topic for discussion at our next meetup. http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/9d2a73fe-a54a-11e3-8070-00144feab7de.html#axzz2vUPbJggB

    This is more of a "probably" than a definite yes--we will only have been back in the UK for about 30 hours! Is there parking nearby?
