• Info about the Global QS Conference in San Francisco this October, including a special member discount
• A call for interviews about people using QS techniques to manage chronic conditions
Seattle Quantified Self Show + Tell #11, August 20
Please come and bring your enthusiasm for self-tracking and self-experiment. You and your graphs, spreadsheets, biometric devices, practical solutions and crazy notions are all welcome. In general, we'd prefer real self-tracking projects you're working on yourself, rather than sales pitches or tools for someone else to use.
• Social hour from 6 pm to 7 pm
• Hands on session for you to see and try a variety of self-tracking devices, led by David Cooper
• A series of short 5 minute talks and discussion.
We want to hear about what you've been tracking! If you're interested in doing a show + tell, please email the organizers in advance so we have an idea of what to expect.
Finally, thanks to our friends at YearUp for providing the space, and EveryMove for sponsoring refreshments.
Quantified Self Global Conference, October 10-11, San Francisco
For those of you who've never been to a QS conference, you should definitely make it a point to attend. A QS conference is a wonderful event where toolmakers, tool users, academics, and scientists come together to share and learn. It's like a meetup, except much bigger and two days long! There will be amazing show&tell talks, product demos, and insightful discussions.
Now here's the good news. The conference organizers at QS Labs, are offering you, as a meetup member, the chance to register for $299. That is $200 off the regular ticket price ($499)! These tickets are very limited and when they're gone, they're gone. You'll have the first chance to purchase a discounted ticket, so make sure to buy your ticket as soon as possible.
In order to purchase your discounted ticket you'll need to enter in our secret QS Meetup member code on the registration page. Make sure to click "Enter promotional code" then enter: qsmember13. We only ask that you not share this link as the number of discount tickets is limited.
Chronic Health Interviews
Are you using QS strategies and self-experiments to gain greater control over or insights into the management or treatment of diabetes (or another chronic health condition)? If so, the Washington Health Foundation would love to interview you and learn about how QS has helped you thrive. If you are interested in sharing your story, please find us at the next QS meetup or email Fisher Qua at [masked]
We hope to see you August 20!
David, Gustavo and David,
Your Seattle Quantified Self Organizers
