Hi QS Fellows,
our next Quantified Self Meetup will take place March 26th in the Betahaus. Please get in touch if you want to present. The program of the event will be updated in a few days.
In May, the Quantified Self Europe conference will take place in Amsterdam which is a great opportunity for you to get deeper insights into QS. In order to find out what the conference will be like you can have a look at the review I have written about last year's Conference in Palto Alto:
As member of the Berlin Quantified Self Meetup group you can get a discounted ticket for the European QS conference here:
If you are an experienced self tracker please consider supporting Nora Schenkel who does research about the motivation of self-trackers in different European countries. She is looking for people who want to take part in a skype interview and give her qualitative insights into their self-tracking habits. I have copied her message below - please get in touch with Nora if you are interested in supporting her research.
Florian + Team QS Berlin
Message from the Nora:
We, Annette, Nora and Weiran are three MSc Design Ethnography students at the University of Dundee in Scotland.Our course is based on the discipline of anthropology, and in this context we are conducting a cross-border project "Quantified Self in Europe", which it is all about investigating the self-tracking movement, i.e.:What are the motivations behind it, and are there differences between countries? We are looking for self-trackers who would tell us about their experiences and motivations.We are interested in members of the QS community, but also self-trackers who are not particularly engaged with QS. We would love to lead 20-30 minute interviews, either in person (in and around Munich, 4 - 9 March), or via Skype (anywhere, now until end of March) We appreciate all interest, information and questions:
