I am in Honolulu a half dozen times a year and thought it would be good to say aloha to others in the QS community. Workwise, I used to run a company called Cheskin, which, qualitatively and quantitatively looked at human behavior in about 20 countries a year. Since selling the company a four years ago, I do a variety of things, for instance I am a Distinguished Visiting Scholar at the MediaX program at Stanford and I co-chair the Presidents' Circle of the National Academy of Sciences in Washington DC. My current QS interests are twofold. 1. I am interested the mind body connection and am looking to quantify various experiments in June dealing with techniques like massage, accupuncture, visualization, etc. I also hope to invest occasionally in QS companies I think have the potential to benefit mankind and grow radically.
My name is Davis Masten. I am a member of the QS Meetup in SanFrancisco. I just attended the first annual QS meeting at the Computer History Museum. It was an amazing experience. I live in Silicon Valley and Diamond Head's Gold Coast.
