Quantified Self London Show&Tell #13

A London QS group meetup consists of 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 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:

Google campus has a reception and a list of attendees. Please find yourself on the list, cross your name and then go straight to the space on the ground floor. I usually try to be there by about 6pm to arrange chairs in a circle, my preferred format for meetups.

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.

    Hi all,

    does anyone remember the name of the guy that presented the brain scanning data? I think he was from a London university. I have an idea for him...!

    Very interesting to see what everyone is measuring and the opportunities out there to get involved.

    Note to anyone who has downloaded v1.0 of SnoreLab: with the sudden expansion of users I've identified an issue linked to microphone calibration that I didn't find in pre-release testing. Consequently, some users' devices are giving results off what they should be. I have issued an urgent fix to Apple! Teething problems... ;)

      Although a perfect illustration of the need to collect some anonymous usage data!

      Hi Ian it does work on the iPhone4 but it requires iOS 5 or 6. If you connect your iPhone to iTunes you will be able to update the software and the app should run! Let me know through the contact form on http://www.snorelab.c...­ if you need help and please post a review if you like the app! Jules

      Thanks Jules. Alas, my wife prefers the Google maps on the iPhone4 to Apple Maps, so she won't upgrade to iOS5 or 6. So I'm afraid I'll have to give it a miss. Good luck, Ian

    For me, the best one yet. Several presentations were sharply focused on outcomes - summary of LA QS, with good refs; reducing snoring; analysing thoughts; mood detecting. Good audience.
