Workshop on designing self-experimentation­

  • Dec 4, 2012 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This will be an opportunity to connect with other trackers in a more intimate than is usual in our vibrant bay area.

6:30-7:15: Social, meet and greet

7:15-8:45: User group sharing on Experimentation Design. Bring an idea for an experiment you'd like to develop or challenges you're currently having with a tracking project. We will roundtable, offer tips and support the process.

We'll explore experimentation design steps and Joe Betts-LaCroix will demonstrate how to use the program "R" for creating visual representations of tracking data.

Looking forward to seeing you.

    I demoed my project Personal Experiments at our meeting a few months ago and just soft launched it today. I promised a few of you to forward the news when it finally happened.

    The intro video will give you a good feeling for what you can do with it if you are interested in tracking or experimentation. Please email [masked] with questions, problems or feature requests. Thank you,

    As I mentioned during our meeting last week, I'm doing a survey study where I ask people to write down their thoughts on how they would design a self-experiment for a treatment (one I provide, one of your own choosing). The study is somewhat targeted to patients with psoriasis, but anyone can take it. The study is hosted on my Personal Experiments site at:

    It's not a test, it's searching for understanding of what design decisions come naturally to people, and which are harder to think, so come on board and please feel free to use "i don't know" liberally!

    Thank you,

    For those of you who are signed up to join us next Tuesday, what of support do you most need for more effective experiment design? I'd love to use this opportunity for an intimate meeting to good effect. -Lisa

    Is anyone looking at the quantified self as it applies to drivers in their car? I've been working with car monitoring per se - e.g. video, driving actions, GPS. I'd like to combine that with monitoring the driver also, taking in their attention, stress, etc.

    The American Gut project may be of interest to this group - crowdfunded human microbiome research, potentially a form of biofeedback that benefits participants and researchers in ways we may not be able to fully imagine at present:

    I cannot attend but if anyone ever looks to incorporate ultrasound imaging into an experiment, please reach out to me. I own and operate Ultrasound Laboratories, Inc.

    Fellow QSers: I created a free QS iPhone app called Expereal, and am looking for testers/feedback - positive and negative. Thank you:
