Seattle Quantified Self Show + Tell #9

Thanks to everyone who came to our meetup last Wednesday at YearUp Puget Sound.

We had six fantastic talks covering theology, psychology for members of the military, pushups, stress, sleep and personal growth.

See them now on our Vimeo channel.

With uncharacteristic speed, we've scheduled the next one! 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. We'll have a social hour from 6 pm to 7 pm, followed by 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.

    Great variety of measurements to think about - a bit rushed on the new gadgets to understand them

    I'm investigating "information diets" (cf. Clay Johnson) for my graduate research. I am interested in how QS can apply here, and would love to hear your thoughts. If you've tracked some or all of your own media consumption, why did you start, what did you want to achieve? What tools and practices work well for you? What data do you collect? How do you analyze it? What didn't work well? What have you learned - about either yourself, or the larger domain of tracking media consumption? If you haven't been including your media consumption in your QS tracking, why not? Is it because you don't have a need? Don't have appropriate tools? Too much work? I'll be attending the meetup and would love to discuss there - but don't hesitate to reply here!

      Hi Dan--I would love to talk with you but it looks like I'll be traveling for the next meet-up. I'm a big media and tracking junkie. I do it less to tally the time, but more to keep track, record and also to look for ways to be more efficient. I use a few social services like GetGlue and for books GoodReads. I like GoodReads a lot--just hit a goal I set there of reading 100 books this year which was tracked for me, and the ability to track books I've read. I'm always looking for ways to be more efficient. If you take a look at Robert Pozen author of Extreme Productivity, he has some good advice on reading several newspapers a day efficiently. --Juliana
