Quantified Self Show & Tell

Please join us for a night of conversation on self tracking and monitoring where you share ideas, tools and experiments with the Portland Quantified Self community. Gary Wolf, the co-founder of Quantified Self and Ernesto Ramirez, Community Organizer for Quantified Self, are also joining us for this evening.

 

If you are self tracking in any way  --- life logging, biometrics, athletic performance, mood, sleep, medical symptoms, happiness, energy etc... come and share your methods, results and insight.

 

 

6 - 7 PM  Social Hour and Networking.

 

Do you wonder what you could discover or change about yourself if you had the right idea, tools or data? Are you curious about what others are tracking? Meet like-minded people and share your experiments even if you don't feel like getting up and talking about it in front of everyone.

 

7 - 8:30 pm QS SHOW & TELL TALKS

 

Talk about your personal self-tracking story! Please let us know in your RSVP if you would like to give a talk!

You can let the three prime questions guide your presentation: What did you do? How did you do it? What did you learn?

Here are some examples from previous Quantified Self events:

    This was a fantastic introduction for me to the ideas of QS, and a great way to meet some like-minded people around Portland. I can't stop talking about it!

    More fun than a barrel of accelerometer-wearing monkeys!

    I think Quantified Self is to personal health informatics and devices, what the Home Brew Computer Club of the 1970's was to PCs. A fun place for early adopters to share their experiments with anyone interested. It's refreshingly noncommercial, but I have no doubt that a number of startup businesses will grow from this movement.

    This set a new, much higher bar for Meetups in terms of quality organization and presentations, not to mention food!

    The quantified self meet up last night had a lot of really great presentations across a broad range of different ways that people are tracking themselves and searching for continuous improvement. Topics range from tracking emotions, tracking commitments to doing something every day, using SuperMemo to translate informational nuggets into long-term memory, and an innovative hack to a computer chair that transformed it into an exercise machine that could help motivate the user to achieve a certain heart rate while still being able to sit down and work at the computer.

    Gary Wolf did an excellent job presenting what Quantified is about and introducing the speakers, who were inspiring. Satisfying range of topics/ projects, from physical products (Mark Leavitt) to still-intangibles (emoo.me) and much inbetween. Lots of good questions from the audience, too.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
