QS Co-Laboratory

Join us for the "free swim" of PDX Quantified Self meetings!

Work and talk in a space with other QSers.  If you've got a pile of data you've been meaning to get to but just haven't devoted a block of time to it, bring it to the Co-Lab.  Other data-interested people will be there for you to share with, get inspired by, and to get help from.

Wank to talk about QS-related ideas? Drop by for a chat, and maybe start or join a QS-related project.

Thinking of presenting something at our bi-monthly Show and Tell?  Hone your presentation during this time, bounce ideas off of people, and get early feedback and encouragement.

We do a round of intros at the beginning to find out what people are interested in doing/talking about, and then people are free to break up, gather together, work, talk, and see what other people are working on.

See you there!

    A thought-provoking evening, thank you for organizing these workshops!

    I enjoyed both formats: the roundtable discussion of Steven's "metric for habit strength" idea, and breaking apart into small group discussions. I regret I had to leave before everyone reconvened to report back to the group the other fascinating topics that came up during conversations. Ah well, more to discover next time. And—having scribbled notes madly throughout—plenty to investigate before then.

    Thanks again for a very rewarding time!

    I loved the first hour (too bad I have to leave these things early.)
    I learned about QS from an excellent new book, The Willpower Instinct by Dr. Kelly McGonigal, who teaches a class on willpower at Stanford. It is wonderful what you can do to boost your willpower so your life runs smoothly, and keeping simple quantified records on your smartphone or on paper is one of them. Viva PDX Quantified Self!

    Way too much fun, fascinating conversations that don't happen in other meetups

    Looking forward to seeing others' projects and working on my own!

    I will be doing some research and hope to talk to people about coming up with a metric that denotes the strength of a habit.

    Hack PerlSql or pxml and/or collate allergy/other tracker. Does anyone know where to get pollen & mold counts, rather than estimates?

    I'm not sure if this is a problem for others, but having this meeting on the second Tuesday of the month conflicts with the well-attended PDXPython meetup. Given that some of us might be using Python in our analysis toolkit, is it within the realm of consideration to begin a conversation about selecting a different day of the month for future meetups?
