NY Quantified Self Show&Tell #17 (ITP)

  • This location is shown only to members

It's time for our summer meetup!

Please come join us in late July for a night of demos and talks on self-tracking and self-experimentation where members of the NY QS community share ideas, tools and experiments. If you are self-tracking in any way -- health, productivity, biometrics, mood, sleep, pain, happiness, energy, etc -- come and share your methods, results and insight.

We will have another hands-on demo hour before the talks.

6:00 -7:00 pm DEMO HOUR & SOCIAL TIME
If you have a self-tracking project, visualization, gadget, app, or idea you'd like to share or demo, but you don't want to get up and talk about it during the Show&Tell talks, we will have a couple of breakout rooms where you can demo the gadget, app or project you're working on and share with others in a more intimate setting. If you'd like to showcase your project during Demo Hour, please let us know when you RSVP.

7:00 - 8:00 pm QS SHOW & TELL TALKS
Presentations will start at 7pm. We save the talks for personal accounts of self-tracking and self-experimentation, rather than sales pitches. We're also interested in gadgets or tools that you've built to track something about yourself.

If you'd like to give a talk, please let us know when you RSVP so we can discuss your topic and how much time you'll need. We keep the length of presentations to 5 minutes + 5 minutes for Q&A. If you have slides to show, feel free but it's not required.

8:00 - 9:00 pm MORE SOCIAL TIME & NETWORKING
Talk to the speakers, chat with new and old friends, ask other people what they're tracking, and generally hang out and have a great time.

QS SPONSORS: OUR THANKS TO NYU ITP
An incredible space is generously being provided by NYU ITP, a two-year graduate program located in the Tisch School of the Arts whose mission is to explore the imaginative use of communications technologies.

    I loved it. I should've been here a very long time ago. I can't thank the community enough for how welcoming they were, and for giving me so much great feedback on Emotish.

    Thanks Kostas, it's a great site! At first glance, the data capture looks similar to Flickr - likes, faves, and comments. 500px looks better connected to marketing opps. I like the visual storytelling tool, that's a good idea.

    Last night's talks covered not just a variety of topics, but also an interesting range of positions on the cultural value of self-quantification - the first three talks, I think, asked some very good questions. In Sharla Sava's talk we can see that self-representation in media is actually necessary to achieve some level of insight into our lives. Objectivity comes in all shapes - not just numbers. Quite a lot of potential here.

    Thought there would be more apps demoing. The first and last speakers were good, but I felt like the middle 2 lost the audience in technical jargon and lack of relevance

    Fantastic mix of expertise - clever geeky open and creative. Great people.
