Quantified Self Warsaw meetup is modeled on the San Francisco Bay Area Quantified Self Show&Tell meetings started in 2008 by Gary Wolf and Kevin Kelly of Wired magazine. It’s a casual meeting for users and makers of self-tracking tools.

Quantified Self is about measuring yourself with sensors, apps and other technology to collect data and make that data useful through visualisation and other ways of feedback.

This group is one of many QS groups around the world and is associated with the Quantified Self blog.

What does a typical presentation involve?

Give a first person account of an actual self-tracking project. A typical presentation is 5-10 minutes long. Informal. Personal. Based on real world experience. At the Quantified Self, we talk about our first hand experiences using self-tracking methods and tools. This approach is embodied in Three Prime Questions:

1. What did you do?

2. How did you do it?

3. What did you learn?

We like scientific theories, demos of tools and apps, and philosophical speculation. But in the context of a Quantified Self Show&Tell they distract unless they are grounded in actual attempts at self-tracking and self-experiment. When theory or demonstrations are embedded in an account of personal experience, however, they work great. Tell us what you’ve done, how you did it, and what it means to you, before making the leap to speculative assertions or entrepreneurial self-praise. Your listeners will learn more, and everybody will have a better time.

The first Polish QS meetup was formed in Krakow. While Krakow and Warsaw groups will organize their separate meetups, we’d like QS Poland to be the first go-to place for QS organizers from any other Polish cities. If you want to create a QS meetup in your hometown, feel free to contact us (in English or in Polish) at quantifiedselfpoland@gmail.com

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
