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.
