It's been too long - we miss you! Apologies for the long break between meetups, but in May we had the amazing Health UP hackathon which took a lot out of us. I know a lot of you attended and I was blown away (again) by the passion and creativity on show - so well done everybody that participated or supported! I hope to be able to bring some of the more QS'y teams to the meetup soon, so watch out for that (Sitbit, Sugarcraft! I'm looking at you!).
Anyway, let's squeeze in a meetup before the National Day break, shall we? Here's the lowdown...
Veronica (a Health UP alumnus) will be giving us an early glimpse at Healint, her startup that look at behavioural analytics through your smartphone, for patients under chronic care. I'm super-excited at the blurring of the lines between Quantified Self, medtech and ubiquitous tracking (more so when people do it for good, not evil), so I will be armed with questions. I hope you will too.
For the second session, I'd like to call on the group to share informally anything that they have been tracking. No need for slides or any of that malarkey, just a chance to geek out for a bit. I know there is an ever-increasing number of Fitbits and Up bands among us, so I'd like to hear people's first experiences with those. And I'm sure there's lots more stories floating around the group.
So when you RSVP, do let me know if there's anything if you'd like to share. As I say to all of our speakers, we are a friendly bunch, so no need to be shy!
Cheers, and hope to see you all next Tuesday,
Singapore Quantified Self 11: Healint & You!

Continuing our long-running partnership with The Hub Singapore! We do need to cover the costs for the space, but we'll soften the blow by running a bar with red and white wine, and a selection of beer and soft drinks. Admission will come with either 1 glass of wine or 2 beers / soft drinks.
Poor students - we will be sponsoring a limited number of free tickets to the event. Get in touch with me directly [[masked] / 97956169] if you require a free ticket.
