QS Toronto Show and Tell #25

Thanks to Heather Payne and Ladies Learning Code for hosting us in their awesome space this time.  We'll be in the 60-person classroom.

Quantified Self is "self-knowledge through numbers". Tracking, feedback, goals, little self-improvement projects, come share your experiences using technology for personal growth. Tracking your mood with your smart phone? Recording your workouts, diet and/or weight? Using a fitbit, zeo, or heart-rate monitor?  Personalized medicine experience? Whatever it is, come share with others and learn from their experience as well. Or come just to watch - sharing not required if you're just curious to see what this is about!

Everyone is welcome. 

If you are presenting, here's a quick tip: The three Quantified Self Questions are: What did you do? How did you do it? What did you learn?  Remember, sharing is important and valuable even if you share your failures - you never know when someone else will be trying the same thing and you can help them avoid the mistakes that you made!  We want to hear your personal stories, and that means really human things like struggling with motivation, experiencing setbacks, and hopefully, every so often, having a flash of insight!

Meeting structure:  

7:00-7:30pm: informal networking, talk sign-up on easel 
7:30-7:45pm: Eric will introduce QS, and then we'll do our quick "three words about yourself" introduction round. 
7:45-9:00pm: show and tell, people give brief (10-20 minute) presentations with extensive Q&A from the crowd

We have until 9:30pm to clear the space, so there is time to chat informally after the talks. Hope to see you there.  Afterward, we'll be finding a local pub (TBA), join us for post show & tell conversation!

    Great meetup! Anyone interested in biomarkers of health might want to take advantage of the Diabetes awareness screening being offered for free at Shoppers Drug Marts on Saturday May 3rd. They are testing blood glucose and Hemoglobin A1c. Perhaps we could compare results at the next meetup.

    All presentations were interesting and educational. That's what I really like about these meetings ... I never know what I'm going to come away with. And tonight, I left with some new concepts, learned a few things, and some follow-up resources to check out. Definitely worth the price of admission ... my time. (Interesting visit to after also. Thanks Eric for the tour.)

    I was looking forward to this but my back has screwed up (for the 3rd time now in 2 weeks) and I'm not very mobile right now. Have fun folks.
