18:30-18:45 – Welcome and announcements.
18:45-19:00 – Brief self-intros.

19:30-21:00 – Show&Tell Talks:

The story of Cukeriada - a tool designed to educate children suffering from type 1 ‎diabetes‬ about their condition by gamifying the learning process.
Krystian Kulesza

What can we learn from measuring heart rate variability?
Piotr Podziemski

How to lose 40 kg thanks to self-tracking (RunKeeper, MyFitnessPal, NTC).
Jan Szelągiewicz

Insights from 23andMe's genotyping.
Tomasz Kolinko

Lark Silent Alarm Clock - how it was launched and where it is now.
Tomasz Młoduchowski

How activity and sleep tracking can structure your day and why mood-measuring apps can be the best motivational tools (Jawbone Up, Moodscope).
Krzysztof Kornas


The discussion during the first part of the meetup will focus both on the quantified self as a global trend and the Quantified Self organization.

How do various biohacks, wearable technologies, apps and devices for self-tracking or lifelogging affect our daily lives and what we can do to understand them better and facilitate the cross-pollination of science, technology, business and new media?

It helps to first answer the question: "What is the Quantified Self Now?", which Whitney Erin Boesel, a social scientist from University of California at Santa Cruz tried to do in a very informative essay: http://quantifiedself.com/2013/05/what-is-the-quantified-self-now


Let us know if you want to demo some tools during the science fair/workshop time - we will set up a corner for you. :)

And if you would like to give a show&tell presentation, please send us a message with a short summary of what you would like to talk about. You can find a detailed description of a typical show&tell here: http://quantifiedself.com/2011/09/our-three-prime-questions

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
