Meetup #8 - Quantified Talks

Please join us on Tuesday, the 10th of June 2014 for the next Quantified Self Zürich meet-up.


Schedule:

18:30 - Meet and greet 
Doors will be open for you to come early and discuss QS interests.


19:00 - The team from genes-x (www.genes-x.com)

The combination of genetic information and self-tracking allows you to reach the perfect lifestyle. At this regard, the opening of the first genetic Flagship Store in the world has the aim to bring these two words  - genetic information and the quantification of the self - under the same roof. Considerations, discussion and possible future developments.



19:30 - Achim Heger (Show and tell)

1977 the first wireless heart rate monitor was invented. Where did we go from there? A quick look back, an overview of contemporary wearables and a glimpse and speculation about the future. 2600BC is the date of the first libraries we know about. What became of this concept in the digital age and what is the potential of it. A talk on the future of libraries.



20:15 - Generic App and Device Show & Tell

App and Device Show & Tell - Everyone is invited to introduce the group to their favorite self-tracking app/device.  We will all hopefully learn about new self-tracking options that we weren't aware of.



20:45 / 21:00 - End of meet up

    It was my first QS meetup, really interesting to hear the discussions and to discover some of the apps and gadgets that people in the group are using. I have already downloaded some of them.

    It was a very hot meet-up :) early summer in Switzerland. Apart form that in my point of view we had some quite interesting and different talks topics as well as many discussions regarding the "how" and "whys". Thank you to COLAB Zurich for the free space! Thank you for all the folks joining the last meet-up.

    I liked that one very much because we discussed not only the common and well knows ways of tracking but also about what comes in the future like aggretating and correlating data as well as taking a look in our genetics
