QS Show&Tell #28 (Microsoft in SF)

Please join us on December 5th for a special experiment: an interactive mini-expo for QS tools, plus some of our usual inspiring show&tells.

We'll be in San Francisco this time, hosted by our friends at Microsoft. Be sure to RSVP early to grab your spot! Gary Wolf will be hosting. Come to meet new people, check out new hands-on gadgets and visualization tools (using your own data!), enjoy healthy food, and learn from personal stories.

Anyone who would like to volunteer, please write to me at [masked]. It's a lot of fun. :)



Think: "your own questions about your own data."

If you are a maker of a gadget or visualization tool and would like to collaborate with us in designing an interactive demo of your tool, let us know when you RSVP! The idea is to let people ask questions of their own data and learn something new about themselves.

And if you're not a toolmaker but have data of your own that you want to play with, bring it along on a flash drive! It can be time-series data, Fitbit or Zeo data, a spreadsheet, whatever you have. We will try to put together ways for you to interact with it and gain new insight.


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 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.



A fantastic space is generously being provided by our friends at Microsoft in SF! Thanks too to IntelAutodesk, 23andMe, and Scanadu, our annual sponsors, for supporting the Quantified Self movement across the country and around the world. Four cheers to them for making our gathering possible!



We use the sponsor money and meetup donations to pay for professional video recording, incidental venue costs, and awesome, healthy refreshments, as well as to fund projects that help the larger QS community. If you or your company are interested in sponsoring Quantified Self, please let us know.

Thank you and see you there!

    Inspiring meeting! I think it would help if the demos for these kinds of meetings had better signage -- bigger for sure-- so we could see at a glance what they were showing us. Maybe large signs with the name of the product and a descriptor? Thanks for a fascinating evening!

    Sat next to a gentleman tonight who was a nutritionist working on an app... and then lost his business card on the way home. Ping me, I'm @uxgreg on Twitter.

    outstanding evening; excellent expo, talks, q&a moderation, ...; food might have been a bit too healthy... ;-)
