QS Show&Tell Meetup #34 (CCA)

  • Jul 28, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • Timken Lecture Hall California College of the Arts

Please join us on Monday, July 28th for an exciting evening of self-tracking presentations, tool demonstrations, and conversation focused around the Quantified Self.  

We're happy to hosted by our friends at the California College of Arts. Be sure to RSVP early to grab your spot! Come to meet new people, check out new hands-on gadgets and tools, enjoy healthy food, and learn from personal stories.

6 -7:30 pm SOCIAL TIME & DEMOS

If you have a self-tracking project, gadget, app, or idea you'd like to share or demo, but you don't want to get up and talk about it, the workshop hour is perfect for you.You don't need to have a prepared talk, just let us know if you want to participate.

Just to be clear, we save the talks for personal accounts of self-tracking and self-experimentation, rather than sales/investor pitches. But of course we are also interested in tools! If you are making something useful for self-trackers – software, hardware, web services, or data standards – please demo it in this workshop portion of the Show&Tell.

We'll also have some light snacks and refreshments available during this social time.

7:30 pm – 9 pm IGNITE SHOW&TELLS

If you'd like to talk about your personal self-tracking story, please let us know in your RSVP so we can discuss your topic. In your talk, you should answer the three prime questions: What did you do? How did you do it? What did you learn?

If you've never been to a meetup before, you can get a sense of what the talks are like from watching videos of previous QS talks.

Don't know what Ignite means? Click here for more info and here for tips on how to deliver a fantastic quick-fire presentation.

9 - 10:00 pm SOCIAL TIME

Talk to the speakers, chat with new and old friends, ask other people what they're tracking, and generally hang out and have a great time.

    Welcome tips if anybody has for new wearables, and techniques to turn data into actionable wisdom...

    Esther, thanks for sharing the article about 23andMe and Parkinson's. I participated in that study, and no surprise, learned from the results that I have the LRRK2 in my code... Would love to hear more about your research around stress monitoring. It definitely has some impact on PD, and I would like to track better...

    I'll be posting my presentation soon from the 7/28 meetup, meanwhile here is my previous one from January:

      Kevin, would love to share more on stress and resiliency and their impact (negatively and positively on PD and health) with you. Can you send your email address to me at [masked] so I might connect?
