QS Show & Tell #3

Thanks to betahaus for hosting our next meeting, which will be on Tuesday, March 26th.

Our keynote speaker this time will be Louis Crowe, a medical researcher who studies neuromuscular electrical stimulation, and whose rigorous self-tracking and experimentation have helped advance this technology. These advances have already been used by millions of people and have the potential to address needs in many areas, from spinal cord injuries to exercise aboard space shuttles. He'll be presenting some of his own personal data and conducting a live demonstration of the technology.

Cassie Zhen, a graphic designer and fitness instructor, will be presenting her month-long self-experiment to see how lung capacity and heart health are affected by a controlled vegan diet and a particular type of short, intense exercise routine.

Florian Schumacher, one of our organizers, will talk about active and passive self-tracking in various areas of life. Florian has tested and used dozens of sensors and apps for activity, sleep, productivity, time and behavior tracking. He will focus on the motivational aspect of these tools and how he uses them to optimize his health and productivity.

We'll have more speakers as well as the usual demo hour and networking afterwards. Hope to see you there!

    First of all, thank you for the meetup!
    Will the slides and related info to the talks be uploaded somewhere?
    It would be great if we could revisit some of the info presented yesterday.

    On a different note; it would have been nice if you would have given us a heads up that a camera team would be present and filming the audience. You could have at least introduced them at the beginning of the meetup!
    Maybe you can at least tell us now, what the video footage will be used for? Thx

      Thanks Jonas for reminding me. They were from an independent production firm and will use the footage for a documentation about sports 2.0 for the RTL format "Die große Reportage". Since this company produces with public funding and has an educational mandate the quality will hopefully above the average RTL level. They plan to broadcast the documentation april 28th and we will receive a copy of it so we can send you a link afterwards. Hope this answers your questions and you excuse that we forgot to tell you in advance.

      I'd like to second Jonas' sentiment. I was hoping you could get in touch with them and ask to have the audience footage used sparingly as I would be very disappointed to see my face on national television... It might be a good idea to do an announcement in advance next time so people who're not happy to be on TV can decide against attending. I am sure you knew they'd be turning up way before the actual event and a note on here wouldn't have gone amiss. Many thanks!

    Unfortunately I have a conflict of time this Tuesday.

    I still intend to invest in b2b as a Business Angel and just found a way to support a financing by domestic and international subsidies (startups/SME in Germany and/or EU and/or Russia). 3 Preconditions : empathy for international co-working with cross border startups and or SME, technical innovative idea, ability for short term decisions as there is a restriction of time.

    Furthermore: I intend to invest in two other startups where an asp and/or php developer in part time is requested (russian language welcome as well). Don’t hesitate to contact me within the next days.

    I think it is time to increase the use of AI software to act on QS data.
