Quantified Self Women's meetup - Boston chapter.

Inspired by the QSXX SF meetup group. (http://www.meetup.com/QSXX-Quantified-Self-...)

Do you track your weight or your period in a journal or calendar? Do you use a Nike Plus or a Fitbit? Do you use a financial management tool like Mint.com? Then you might be a quantified self.

We're all generating lots of data, whether actively recording it or using transactions, apps, and sensors to generate the data. What do we do with that data? What can it tell us about ourselves?

People in the Quantified Self community have been self-tracking and analyzing their data in novel ways. We are doing experiments, running correlations, fostering new habits. More tools are entering the consumer market to make it easier for us to track ourselves without much effort and we're starting to find tools that help us make sense of our disparate data sets. It's not just geeks or science bros running statistical correlations in R. Creating data can be just as useful as a tool for building awareness about a goal you have.

Women's voices in the QS community are underrepresented, even though we've all been tracking things forever. We're hoping to change that. What does your data tell you about yourself? What can women learn when they take advantage of the existing data, and use more tools to generate novel data about our bodies, minds, and our environment? 

We want to create a space for all the interesting, women specific QS conversations we want to have. For women and people who identify or have identified significantly as non-male. Let's get together to talk about what we're tracking, what we're learning, and how we want to share it.

The Quantified Self movement involves exploring the self through numbers. Some potential topics of interest might include:

- Behavior monitoring
- LIfelogging
- Fitness and health tracking
- Chemical body load counts
- Personal genome sequencing
- Metabolic monitoring
- Self experimentation
- Location tracking
- Sleep tracking
- Mood and emotion tracking
- Medical self-diagnostics
- Digital body info
- Psychological self-assessments
