Please join us on February 23rd for another night of self-tracking presentations, sharing lessons learned, and showing tools.
We're returning to the beautiful offices of WellnessFX in San Francisco (rescheduled due to fire - thank you WellnessFX folks!). Be sure to RSVP early to grab your spot. We'll be continuing with the Ignite Plus format (Ignite talks + Q&A period) for talks. Gary Wolf will be hosting, and Ernesto Ramirez from QS San Diego is coming up again to help.
Anyone else who would like to volunteer, please write to me (Alex) at [masked].
**Also note the schedule change below, to try to help new people feel more welcome!
6 -7 pm SOCIAL HOUR AND WORKSHOP
Think: "science fair" for adults.
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, or permission to show something. Just come and bring what you have. 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 will also be encouraging people to talk to new people they've never talked to before!
7 pm – 8:30 pm QS SHOW&TELL TALKS
If you'd like to talk about your project, please let us know in your RSVP so we can discuss your topic and how much time you'll need.

8:30 - 10 pm MORE 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 fun.
