QS Show & Tell #1

  • November 22, 2012 · 7:30 PM

We've got some awesome speakers and projects lined up for our first meeting. Steven Dean is a designer, educator, entrepreneur and organizer of the New York QS meetup. In his keynote address, he'll discuss the history and background of the Quantified Self movement and describe his own approach to self-tracking while training for an Ironman Triathlon. Denis Harscoat is a co-founder of DidThis and co-founder of the QS groups in Paris and London. He'll be talking about self-tracking of actions and the "programmable self." Peter Lewis is a co-organizer of this QS group and developer of "spaced repetition" (SRS) educational apps. Lewis will talk about the various types of SRS software, his personal experience with SRS-based learning, why this powerful method hasn't become more widespread, and how that could change.

We'll also have more people and startups presenting their stories of personal data, self knowledge and behavior change. This is the first time we've invited speakers from the international Quantified Self community to come to Berlin, and the meetup will be a great opportunity to get inspired by authentic QS culture.

19:30 Admission and Introduction

    I've made the first couple of English-language posts at the German QS blog, and we'll soon have a full English section there -- let us know if you're interested in potentially writing about your own self-experiments, or if you want to help with translating some of the existing German content:

      Do you have a format for writing about our own projects, or should we just describe them here in this forum? I would be interested in translating German articles into English, how long are they?

    Note that we've now set the location and pushed the timing back a half hour. Now that we know how much space we'll have, we will probably be capping attendance at around 75, so please RSVP now if you haven't done so -- and if you've signed up but won't be able to attend, please change your status to make room for others. Thanks and looking forward to meeting you all!
